DIDO, QUEEN OF CARTHAGE

Christopher Marlowe

Director Kimberley Sykes delves into Christopher Marlowe’s rarely told story of the intensity of human passion.

What is your identity if your nation has been destroyed? Fleeing a war-torn Troy, Aeneas is a refugee seeking new roots and a new identity in Europe.

Queen Dido is ready to help him when meddling Gods intervene and turn help into an all-consuming love.

Do they follow their hearts or fulfil their political destinies?

Marlowe’s first play is the rarely told story of the intensity of human passion and a woman of strength and brilliance who refused to be silenced.
