Two iconic plays
Seven deaths
Fourteen characters
One unique evening

An audacious condensed staging of two of Shakespeare’s most brutal and poetic plays. Uniquely told by an ensemble company, these two iconic stories collide in this dynamic and visceral new production.

Directed by Jude Christian, who most recently co-directed the sell-out, Royal Court production of My Mum’s a Twat with Vicky Featherstone, as well as the 2015 hit Lela & Co, also at the Royal Court. Jude returns to Manchester following her work directing the Royal Exchange and Bush Theatre production of Parliament Square. Her collaboration with the Lyric Hammersmith continues following 2017’s The Seagull.

This production is designed by Basia Bińkowska, the overall winner of the Linbury Prize 2017. The Linbury Prize is the UK’s most prestigious award for Stage Design, providing a unique opportunity for graduating designers to work with some of the UK’s leading theatre, opera and dance companies.
