An audacious condensed staging of two of Shakespeare’s most brutal and poetic plays, exploring fear, jealousy, power and revenge. Two stories in which powerful men are manipulated into destroying their societies, their households, their loved ones and themselves.

In this dynamic and visceral production, these two iconic plays will be performed together by one exciting company of actors, examining escalating cycles of violence, abuses of power and the role and nature of the “tragic hero”.
