The Revenger's Tragedy

Recently accepted as part of Thomas Middleton’s canon, this chilling, satirical drama tells the story of a malcontent who returns to the Italian court to avenge his poisoned fiancee.

This play was staged in repertory along with A Chaste Maid in Cheapside in February 2011 at the Bus Stop Theatre.


”… I was riveted by the dark and blood-thirsty machinations, which are served up with a healthy dose of humour.”

“Add the creative and effective staging and eye-popping costumes, and you have theatre that deserves to be seen.” – The Coast
