UP NEXT:
CRY HAVOC
Play by Tom Coash
27th March - 20th April 2019, Park Theatre
​European Premiere
   
“Love is a search for faith. Love is passion. Putting your hand in the fire and believing. Ripping your heart out and laying it on a sidewalk for mobs to trample. What would you do for love?”

Cry Havoc, set in present-day Cairo, is a passionate love story between a young and spirited Egyptian, and a British writer. The two men are forced to confront their cultural identities, traditions, and a repressive government in a gripping search for love and faith. Tom Coash’s poignant, intimate play explores the relationship between the Western world and the Islamic Middle East through the eyes of two people asking if love can bridge even the widest cultural divide.

SUMMER 2018:
FAUST, ALBERTA 
Music theatre by Simone Spagnolo (world premiere)
September 2018, Opera in the City Festival, Bridewell Theatre
The operatic spectacle Faust, Alberta explores the tragic story of Doctor Faustus and his fatal deal with Mephistopheles from a contemporary angle. A Nameless Man finds himself in a remote cabin surrounded by frozen snowfields. He doesn't know who he is nor where he is from, only that something is after him - an unstoppable machine that hunts those who fell from grace. In nine scenes, he tries to collect his memory. Triggered by snippets from his past, he slowly starts to put the pieces together.

The radical reworking of the classic portrays Faust as a man who has lost his identity and the sense of his journey along the way, and is desperately trying to solve the jigsaw of his existence. It is a philosophical piece about how to find one's true self, brought to live by Simone Spagnolo's haunting score.
