Independent Productions, Suba Das and Hoxton Hall present a rare opportunity to see a professional production of Thomas Middleton’s genre-defining The Revenger’s Tragedy. Set in a world wretched with corruption, the play follows a young man’s struggle against the decadent ruling family while his sister fights to defend her chastity against a grotesque cast of lechers and deviants. Combining horror and bloodshed with the blackest of satire, Middleton gleefully deconstructs the revenge genre, revelling in the collision of the tragic and the absurd.
Suba Das’ production (in association with Independent Productions) is visceral and contemporary, staged in the Victorian splendour of Hoxton Hall and featuring a vibrant young cast including Jaime Winstone as Castiza and Tom Mothersdale as Vindice. This 100-minute reimagining of the classic play features set design by Rachael A. Smith (Coney), movement by Lucy Cullingford (Royal Shakespeare Company) and lighting design by Tupac Martir (Alexander McQueen, Matthew Williamson, and Beyonce at Glastonbury ([Video and Projection]). Sally Barnden is a PhD student at Kings and is working on the audience outreach with the producer of The Revenger’s Tragedy.
