The Revengers Tragedy

Fantastic performance. Given that we were too cheap to pay the extortionate price for a program, I have no idea who was in the cast or even who directed. But what a marvellous production – fast, focused, coulourful, energetic and totally rivetting. A sold out house on a Monday evening, in the Olivier Theatre, which seems to hold about 3000 people.
Definitely want to see more revenge tragedies and Shakespeare contemporaries.
