Photo Flash: First Look at Ashtar Theatre and Border Crossings' THIS FLESH IS MINE

‚Äč

THIS FLESH IS MINE, a new play by Brian Woolland, is being presented in association with Ashtar Theatre (Palestine) and The Royal Central School of Speech and Drama, now through 25th May at Testbed1. BroadwayWorld has a first look at the cast in action below!

Achilles, the greatest of the Achaean warriors, refuses to fight; angered that King Agamemnon has stolen his captive slave-girl, Briseis. But Briseis has dreams and desires of her own.

Produced in collaboration with Ashtar Theatre from Palestine, Brian Woolland's taut and poetic new play for Border Crossings brings together Homer's Troy and the Middle East of today: worlds shaken by cycles of violence and revenge, by ambition and self-interest masquerading as idealism; worlds struggling towards any possibility of reconciliation.

This site specific production at the unique Testbed1 in Battersea is complimented by food stalls, music, politics and art - a Middle Eastern feast for the senses. The show runs 19th - 25th May, Mon-Sat at 7.30pm. Education matinee Thurs 22nd May at 1 pm; Sat matinee at 2.30 pm; and Sun matinee at 4 pm. Tickets: £10 - £15. Location: Testbed1, 33 Parkgate Rd, SW11 4NP . Book via Rich Mix - 020 7613 7498 or click here. Note tickets can be collected at Testbed 1 (NOT Rich Mix) from one hour before the performance.
