CORONAVIRUS: currently, all theatres and related venues are closed. Shows are either being cancelled, postponed or rescheduled and we are trying to keep up with all the changes. There are currently few changes after May 2020 and many shows that were due for April have been pushed back towards the end of Autumn. Pantomimes are looking like a safe bet at the moment ;-)
Retells 20 years of the French Wars of Religion, from the notorious 1572 St Bartholomew's Day Massacre, through the poisoning of Charles IX, to the coronation and subsequent assassination of his flamboyant, homosexual brother Henry III. The play's anti-hero, the villainous Duke of Guise, aided by the Machiavellian Queen Mother, Catherine de Medici, proves the ultimate Marlovian over-reacher.
