The Monk by Matthew Lewis at Barons Court Theatre
Tarquin Productions presents The Monk, by Matthew Lewis, new adaptation by Benji Sperring , at Barons Court Theatre, a fringe venue in west Kensington, west London, from 16 Oct to 4 Nov 2012.
Directed by Benji Sperring , starring Francisco Ortiz (Ambrosio), Sadie Tonks (Pablo), Sam Marriott , Will de Renzy-Martin..

Murder, incest, rape and infanticide are trivial consequences for Ambrosio’s lust. No-one in the auditorium is safe, and as the action builds, the theatre itself is dragged into Hell.
