Cheek by Jowl
’Tis Pity She’s a Whore
by John Ford
‘Thou hast told a tale whose every word
Threatens eternal slaughter to the soul’
Incest, religion and corrupt morality collide in the tale of a brother and sister, locked in a relationship that defies taboos and that sparks a passionate descent into hell. Even after nearly 400 years, few plays are as controversial as this dark and violent Jacobean tragedy; and few are as intense.
Thrillingly paced as it hurtles to its climax, ’Tis Pity She’s a Whore is classic theatre with a startlingly modern outlook - typical of the gripping theatrical style which characterises Cheek by Jowl’s work.
***** ‘This superb show grasps its pity and provocation’
The Sunday Times
