GLORIANA & Company presents 'The Maid's Tragedy'
A soldier returns to the tiny, privileged kingdom of Rhodes for his best friend's wedding, but the bride is not who he expected. The King has intervened, jilting poor love-struck Aspatia and replacing her with the soldier's sister, Evadne. The soldier and the groom must unravel the mystery of what happens behind closed doors on an island where one man's word is law.
Francis Beaumont and John Fletcher's The Maid’s Tragedy is a twisted tale of power, honour, corruption, sex, and revenge. First performed in the Jacobean era, alongside other darkly gothic tales of blood and betrayal such as Shakespeare's Macbeth and Tis Pity She's a Whore, four centuries later GLORIANA brings you a contemporary production of this hidden gem of the theatre canon filled with twists and turns, equal parts hilarious, horrifying, and moving.
The Maid's Tragedy contains scenes of violence and depictions of suicide.
