Lazarus Theatre to Stage Shakespeare's TROILUS AND CRESSIDA at Camden Fringe and More, Aug 18-Sept 6
Following last year's sell out production of The Tragedy of Mariam, Lazarus returns to the Tristan Bates Theatre and to the Camden Fringe for the fifth time, with Shakespeare's Troilus and Cressida.
Two young lovers are thrust into the tempest of war, their love tested, punished and ultimately torn apart. When war and lechery confound all, what chance is there for love?
Shakespeare's striking and immediate examination of the motives of conflict and the effect upon those in the eye of the storm comes to the stage in this fresh and bold new adaptation. An all ensemble cast through an inventive use of text, movement and music shall create a Troy for today, a world at war and one of the most beautifully devastating plays of all time.
Award winning Lazarus Theatre Company is committed to producing the best in classical theatre for a modern audience; our work involves text, movement and music through the use of ensemble to create a re-imagined, fresh and bold presentation of some of our greatest works.
Opening in the final week of the 2014 Camden Fringe Festival, the production then continues until the 6th September playing Monday to Saturday at 7.30pm
Cast shall be announced shortly. Written by William Shakespeare. Adapted and directed by Ricky Dukes.
