KINGDOM COME: I THOUGHT TO HAVE BEEN SILENT. BUT THIS IS A TIME OF WAR

KINGDOM COME: I THOUGHT TO HAVE BEEN SILENT. BUT THIS IS A TIME OF WAR

Created by Gemma Brockis and Wendy Hubbard

Created by Gemma Brockis and Wendy Hubbard.

The year is 1640. Parliament is rebellious. There are mobs on London’s streets. England, Ireland and Scotland are poised on the brink of a devastating civil war. In Whitehall, supported by the newest theatrical machinery, King Charles I is playing a god. This cannot end well.

As the world turns upside down women preach, poor men lead, and radical ideas illuminate the carnage.

But the puritan state starts to tighten its grip, and making theatre could soon be a capital offence…

This September join us for a performance set at the bitter end of one political order and in the struggle towards something new.
