Artistic Directors of Cheek by Jowl, Declan Donnellan and Nick Ormerod announce a major new revival of Francis Beaumont’s The Knight of the Burning Pestle which will be performed by an all-Russian company. The production tours internationally in 2019 – including a first time run for the play in Russia.

THE KNIGHT OF THE BURNING PESTLE

By Francis Beaumont

Director: Declan Donnellan; Designer: Nick Ormerod  

Cast includes: Alexander Feklistov, Anya Khalilulina, Andrei Kuzichev and Igor Teplov

The play starts … But then the plays stops!
A grocer and his wife in the audience invade the stage.
Just another boring trendy play ... Probably anti-grocer too....
What do they want? A return to good old entertainment values with dragons, kidnapped princesses and exotic locations - Excitement and glamour… And so the pair remain on stage to 'help' the actors improve their storyline.
Beaumont's hilarious satire roars into life again, ever more timely as the 21st century continues to unfold.. 

Produced by Cheek by Jowl and the Pushkin Theatre, Moscow
