Award-winning ensemble and SJT Associate Company The Faction return following their successful run of The Talented Mr. Ripley with a series of thrilling solo shows.
This triple bill is a diverse collection of stories old and new as The Faction “expertly treads the line between classics and new writing” with their hallmark inventiveness.
Emily Juniper’s Off West End nominated take on Euripides’ classic Medea is a blistering dialogue between Medea and her wedding dress that emerges as an emancipatory call and an expression of resistance as she contemplates the ultimate crime.
Amelia Donkor (who SJT audiences will remember from The 39 Steps) and Rachel Valentine Smith transform Lorca’s 1922 lecture about art and the artist into a new invitation to laugh, to feel, to care, a hundred years later. Duende is the Spanish word that encapsulates the passion, soul and integrity unique to creativity.
Douglass. Statesman. Orator. Survivor of Slavery. Icon. Celebrated playwright and cultural commentator Bonnie Greer’s new play explores the forces that faced Douglass, the contemporary comparisons for Black men, and the significance of toppling statues.
Content warning: references to murder, suicide, and violence.
There will be a Q&A after the Thursday 11 November, 7.30pm performance with the cast and creatives.
"Its a bold, brave enterprise"
"The great thing about The Faction is that they refuse to hide behind preconceptions"
"A real signature in imaginative, contemporary and visceral versions of the classics...this enterprising and determined company is doing us all a service"
