An ordinary farm labourer's wife and unborn child die in childbirth. Unable to accept this cruelty, the ploughman sues Death, who duly appears to answer the charges. Although written in 1401, Death and the Ploughman
perfectly sums up the attitude we still have towards grief, and the arrogance still innate in man which belies his own environment and mortality. Runner up of the Gate Translation Award 2002. Illuminating the power of von Saaz's vision, this semi-promenade show is an unforgettable, tragicomic encounter with Death. Please bring warm clothing and appropriate footwear for uneven terrain. Running time: 2hrs. Age recommendation 14+Author Johannes von Saaz. Presented by The Mechanical Animal Corporation. Presented by Tobacco Factory Theatres. Presented by Arnos Vale Cemetery Trust. Translation Michael West. Director Tom Bailey. Design Chris Gylee.
