“Tis time to die, when ’tis a shame to live.”

De Flores will do anything for Beatrice Joanna… literally anything.

Beatrice Joanna is betrothed to a man she does not like, let alone love. Along with her servant De Flores (by whom she is repulsed) she disposes of the suitor, but when it comes to payment De Flores wants more than money. Their decent into hellish madness haunted by ghosts and lunatics, propelled by sex and obsession, leads to one of the greatest climaxes of the English stage.

Widely regarded as one of the best tragedies of the English Renaissance, Middleton and Rowley’s extraordinary and chilling The Changeling comes to the stage in this intimate, intense and full-throttle new ensemble production.

Recommended for ages 14+.
