Based on a real-life scandal, Arden remains one of the most entertaining Elizabethan dramas of all time. A new adaptation of an anonymous tragicomedy, Arden follows an unfaithful wife as she convinces her greedy lover, a nervous servant, a mysterious painter, and a vicious cutthroat to take her husband down. But as the schemes get more and more complicated and the would-be killers grow more and more desperate, the play hurtles towards an inevitable – and bizarre – conclusion. Think Renaissance Fargo.
Artistic Director Dan Bray reshapes this infamous tale of lust, greed, and paranoia for the Halifax stage, creating a breathless, new adaptation, to be staged in the shadowy recesses of the historic Keith’s Brewery.
