Lazarus Theatre Company have announced a second season at the Greenwich Theatre with three epic and outstanding works playing from February – May 2019.
The Season begins with The Tempest, running 5th – 16th February, a storm, violent and destructive, reveals an enchanted island ruled by Prospero. In creating this fierce and ferocious tempest Prospero wrecks a passing ship and washes her enemies upon the shore. When they wake they find themselves lost on a fantastical island where nothing is as it seems. A story of magic, love, revenge and forgiveness.
Lord of the Flies returns after a sell-out run in 2018 and is the second production in this residency, running 20th to 30th March. Eleven children, one island… an incredible adventure turns into a fight for survival.
Originally banned in Britain, Wilde’s outrageously provocative Salomé comes to the stage in an exotic and exquisite new production and features as the finale to the second season, running 14th – 25th May.
Artistic Director Ricky Dukes said “It is fantastic to be able to continue our relationship at our new home at the Greenwich Theatre building on our incredible 2018 Season. 2019 sees us create a fantastical new production of Shakespeare’s late great play The Tempest, that will see us transform the Greenwich Theatre into an elemental experience. Our hugely popular and epic production of Lord of the Flies returns, this time bigger and bolder. And finally, we complete the season with the scandalous Salomé by Oscar Wide. The production places sexuality at the fore, reimagining the famous role as a young sexually fluid male.
We look forward to welcoming audiences new and old to our epic space, our passion for bringing the classics to a contemporary audience holds no bounds.”
