Behind the scenes of The Revenger’s Tragedy at the Barbican (March 2020)

A look behind the scenes of The Revenger's Tragedy, which performed at the Barbican, London in March 2020.

For their first Italian production, Declan Donnellan and Nick Ormerod chose The Revenger’s Tragedy by the Jacobean playwright Thomas Middleton. Intrigue, corruption, lust, narcissism and the thirst for power collide in a 17th century Italian court which seems strangely contemporary. Seeking revenge at any cost for the murder of his fiancée, Vindice is drawn into a terrible helter-skelter of punishment which puts his very identity in crisis.

Produced by Piccolo Teatro di Milano – Teatro d’Europa, co-produced by Emilia Romagna Teatro Fondazione in collaboration with Cheek by Jowl.
