‘BURN, BURN TO NOTHING. BUT LET VENICE BURN HOTTER THAN ALL THE REST.’

Venice is sinking.

Under the shadow of darkness, an impoverished nobleman and senator’s daughter marry in secret, and are disinherited by her oppressive father.

Discontented and vulnerable, Jaffeir is enlisted by his dear friend Pierre – a decorated and famous Venetian soldier – to join an international revolution against the leaders of their failed city state. But when a soldier from within the revolution threatens his wife Belvidera, they go on the run, and make a decision that tears their lives apart.

Prasanna Puwanarajah directs this new production of Thomas Otway’s rarely-performed Restoration political thriller: a dark masterpiece, and a breathtaking love story.
