Following the tremendously enjoyable experience I had on “Into Thy Hands” at Wilton’s Music Hall, I’m delighted to announce that Jericho House have invited me back for their next production. It’s one of my favourite plays and I’ve already had a fantastic three weeks getting to know it again. I’m really looking forward to another successful collaboration. In a couple of weeks, we’ll be taking it to Jerusalem, Bethleham, Haifa and Nablus before taking up residence at St. Giles, Cripplegate as part of the Barbican’s Bite Season 2011 during Sept./Oct. For tickets, click the flyer above.

Details:

Shakespeare’s vision of rebellion, collaboration and uneasy peace is given a poignant anniversary revival in the atmospheric surroundings of St Giles’ Cripplegate Church.

Thrown together in limbo, mid-way between Europe and the East, a group of exiles fight for control of a haunted land and a contested history, while the indigenous inhabitants plan their resistance.

Performed by an international cast, this new work by Jericho House restores surviving music that would have accompanied the play when it premiered 400 years ago. For the first time sound and narrative are reunited in this greatest of meditations on territorial conflict, displacement and political renewal.

’As riveting an example of site-specific theatre as I’ve ever seen.’ The Times on Jericho House’s Katrina
