"How sharper than a serpent's tooth it is
To have a thankless child!"
- St John’s College Gardens(entrance via Queen's Road only)
In the magnificent setting of St John’s College gardens, an ageing monarch divides a kingdom among his three daughters. In doing so his world descends into chaos and all that he once believed is brought into question. Love and duty, power and loss, good and evil are all explored in this fast-paced and dynamic production. Not to be missed!
… no knee-bending to trendy revisionism... but rather a tour de force of Elizabethan drama
