Lazaridis Hall, Tom Patterson Theatre
Thursday, September 15
8:00 p.m. to 10:00 p.m.

Play By the Book

Dramatic readings of exciting plays, offering new perspectives and voices expanding the classical canon.


The Revenger’s Tragedy by Thomas Middleton 

This grotesque spectacle, both disturbing and hilarious, takes many ideas from the popular revenge story of its time, similar to Hamlet. The passionate revenger, Vindice, looks to right the wrongs of his brutal and depraved society by becoming a cog in the machine of wealth, power, and debauchery. This deeply disquieting, entertaining, and marvellous play straddles the line between comic enjoyment and tragic intensity.

Presented in collaboration with Shakespeare BASH’d. Facilitated by Julia Nish-Lapidus and James Wallis.
