A Halloween Horror Event

This Halloween, those brave enough are invited to enter the decayed, ghost-filled grandeur of Hoxton Hall, to witness one young man’s roaring rampage of revenge.

Terrible things happened here. And tonight, the dead will not rest easy.

Directed by Suba Das following the sell-out successes of his site-specific productions of The Winter's Tale ("an atmospheric triumph", The Guardian) and Othello (Time Out Critics' Choice), this new experience is a 100 minute reimagining of Thomas Middleton’s classic tale, featuring set design by Rachael A Smith (Coney), movement by Lucy Cullingford (Royal Shakespeare Company) and lighting design by Tupac Martir (Beyonce at Glastonbury).

Middleton's depraved and sticky mess of a play has here been well transplanted to the creaking beauty of a Hoxton Music Hall. Suba Das' vision of demented Victoriana, with sword-cane, white tie and masquerade trappings would have made the angry child of Jacobean playwrights smile more than anything except, perhaps, stabbing an orphan.

Tom Mothersdale's Vindice lives up to his name. The division between his hyper-stagey court persona and the darker, more withdrawn reality provides excellent watching, particularly when thrown into focus by Middleton's relentless asides. His lascivious (verbal) intercourse with Nana Amoo-Gottfried's Lussurioso is slick and sensical, which, of course, makes it all the sweeter when he tears out his eye in the closing scene.

Indeed, all the play's litany of violence is approached by all concerned with a particular relish suited to the time of year. The audience is afforded the happy opportunity to get up close and personal with a severed tongue and pulsing eyeball, and the violence enabling these gruesome displays aptly combines elegance and physicality. At this point it is also worth noting that sword-canes are cool regardless of circumstance.

“Revenge is sweetly spooky....[Jaime Winstone is]…beautifully this Winstone-shaped space" THE TIMES
“Captures the headlong adrenaline rush of revenge and the camp pleasures of the Jacobean pile-up" TIME OUT
“This production….is enough to make even the most devout horror fan squirm. There is – and the squeamish should probably skip the rest of this sentence – rape, eye gouging, eyeball squidging (after the gouging), tongue-severing, foreplay on a grave, and a lot of stabbing….” THE TELEGRAPH

On 2nd and 9th November, the show will be followed by 'Sweet Revenge' – Time Out Live’s Friday post-show event featuring celebrated cabaret and music acts including Rebekah Delgado, Marcel Lucont and many others to be announced. For more information see here.
