Watched by the ghost of a young soldier and the mysterious figure of Revenge, the royal leaders of war-torn Spain and Portugal plan a marriage between their families in the hope of forging peace.

But the bride to be already has a secret lover. When he is murdered to make way for the new groom, his father Hieronimo 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.

This inventive modern-dress production rediscovers the play as a ferociously powerful exploration of grief, violence, and the human need for retribution.
