Giordano Bruno was burned as a heretic by the Catholic Church, but he still haunts the dreams of the Pope. In these dreams, Bruno escapes to a British heaven, governed by an eternal Queen Elizabeth I. Can Bruno escape the fires and consummate a mystical marriage with the Queen of Heaven? Will a new farce by a female Shakespeare be a success? A witty and satirical take on the works of Shakespeare, performed in the heart of London on the foundations of the Bardâs original home. More Light is a surreal and comedic play, revelling in the arcane, the occult, and the irrational. Magic, creativity, and sexual activity are shown to be capable of releasing immense energies that can rupture the structures of the status quo, opening up new possibilities. Snoo Wilson is noted for his ability to fuse social criticism with a surrealistic style that is highlighted with bold strokes of theatricality. This revival of More Light, last produced in 1987 at The Bush Theatre, revels in the surreal and the abstract, travelling to the stars by way of Giordano Brunoâs memory palace, the Elizabethan stage and a lowly scarab beetle...Performers Jackson Wright, Neil Chinneck, Cassandra Hodges, Claire Jared, Rob Lyndon, Nicholas Ruben, Leanna Wigginton.
