The first play ever published written by a woman is to be performed at the Tristan Bates Theatre.
The Tragedy of Mariam by Elizabeth Tanfield Cary was written in the early Seventeenth Century and is to be performed by the fringe masters of Jacobean classics – Lazarus Theatre Company. This production marks the plays professional London stage debut.
The King is dead; the Queen must face her people. As the truth about King Herod’s passing unravels, Mariam must face those who promise persecution, recrimination and damnation. Love, sex, adultery and seduction: a woman’s voice is central to this ensemble production.
You can catch the show at the Tristan Bates Theatre near Covent Garden between 12th and 17th August 2013.
Book tickets by calling 020 7240 6283, or by visiting the Tristan Bates Theatre website.
Lazarus Theatre Company will return later in the autumn with The Merchant of Venice, which will play at the Jack Studio Theatre, Brockley, from 19th November – 7th December.
