Over the past six years, The Villain’s Theatre has brought you such revenge tragedies as The Duchess of Malfi, The Revenger’s Tragedy, and Women Beware Women– yet no play has affected all of western drama quite so much as this, the first of its kind: The Spanish Tragedy. A cautionary tale gone wrong, it is a story about the nature of justice, the swiftness of fate, and the price of allegiance.

Told with an unhealthy dose of pitch-black humour and some of the period’s most stark and jarring text, this NEW adaptation of Thomas Kyd’s seminal drama will feature a cast of six powerful female performers and will see the Bus Stop Theatre transformed into a hive of evil.

Triunfo Espagna!
