The Tragedy of Mariam by Elizabeth Cary, adapted and directed by Gavin Harrington-Odedra, 12 to 17 Aug 2013, at the Tristan Bates Theatre, a 60-seat venue in Covent Garden. The King is dead; the Queen must face her people. As the truth about King Herod’s passing unravels, Mariam must face those who promise persecution, recrimination and damnation.
The Merchant of Venice by William Shakespeare, adapted and directed by Ricky Dukes, at the Jack Studio Theatre, in Brockley, south London, 19 Nov to 7 Dec 2013. Set against a global financial meltdown. Antonio, with assets tied to investments, finds his commitments lead him to one of the greatest characters of all time, Shylock. Their embittered rivalry leads to a fight to the death. Venice will never be the same again.
