The Revenger's Tragedy
Saturday 22 February 2020 - 00:00 to Friday 28 February 2020 - 00:00

An extraordinary success last season with both audiences and critics, The Revenger’s tragedy returns to the Teatro Strehler before once again departing for a prestigious international tour. A play which the British Declan Donnellan, who also wrote the adaptation of the original work, has led Italian audiences to rediscover the English baroque playwright Thomas Middleton.

A master of Shakespearian theatre and its contemporary re-reading, Donnellan focuses on dark irony, on paradox, on the feverish melancholy which envelops the characters, bringing to light - also through an entertaining touch of “pulp” and an irresistible score - the extraordinary convergence between the original work and the present day.
