Doublethink Theatre, Jacob Wagen and Sotirios Hatjoullis present
The Spanish Tragedy
By Thomas Kyd

“A screech-inducing sort of treat to see this legendary yet rarely staged
Elizabethan classic. Mitchell Moreno’s directing… is electrifying”
on Sunday

Direct from his acclaimed performance as ‘Washington’ in the Globe’s
A New World and before he stars alongside Keira Knightly and Damian
Lewis in the West End, Dominic Rowan leads “a tremendous cast” (Londonist)
in this explosive revival of Thomas Kyd’s classic revenge tragedy.

Rowan plays Hieronimo, the father of a murdered son who, in the midst of a
peace treaty between warring Spain and Portugal, is forced down a brutal path
of vengeance from which there is no return.

The first revenge play on the Elizabethan stage, The Spanish Tragedy
was a sensational hit and inspired a whole new wave of drama, including Shakespeare’s
Hamlet. Directed by Mitchell Moreno, this production rediscovers The
Spanish Tragedy
as a ferociously powerful exploration of grief, violence
and the human need for retribution.

“Gloriously bombastic and operatic in scope, sending judder after judder
through the unnerved audience.”

“Fascinating… What impresses most is the sheer bravado and immediacy…
The Spanish Tragedy is a MUST.”

“Gripping from beginning to blood-soaked end”
