Dido, Queen of Carthage

by Christopher Marlowe
Directed by Bec Martin 

A refugee from war-torn Troy, Aeneas is seeking new roots and a new identity in Europe. Queen Dido is ready to help to build a second Troy in Italy – until the gods intervene, and mere cooperation is transformed into a fierce, possessive love for their own amusement.

Will they save the Trojan people or will love conquer all?

Dido and Aeneas’ epic love story plays out in Marlowe’s lush verse, bursting with iambic poetry and full of adventure.

Christopher Marlowe was a poet and playwright at the forefront of the 16th-century dramatic renaissance. Recognised as a homage to Virgil’s Aeneid, Dido, Queen of Carthage is widely considered as his first play.

Performed by the BA Acting Graduating Class of 2022 and part of Fourth Monkey’s Classic Season of shows, Marlowe’s rarely told story is an intense tale of meddling gods, public duty and tragic love.

Titus Andronicus

by William Shakespeare
Directed by Jamie Biddle

Roman general Titus Andronicus returns triumphant from a decade at war, his enemy Tamora Queen of the Goths locked away in chains. But when an impulsive new Emperor decides not only to free her, but to make her his queen, she embarks upon a merciless course of retribution.

As Tamora and Titus engage in an intensifying cycle of violence, who will emerge victorious?

Titus Andronicus is one of Shakespeare’s earliest, and goriest plays: a revenge tragedy styled after the popular works of the time.

Performed by the BA Acting Graduating Class of 2022 and part of Fourth Monkey’s Classic Season of shows, Titus Andronicus mixes murder and mutilation into a terrifying story about revenge and honour. 

Julius Caesar

by William Shakespeare
Directed by Jane Jeffrey

“Beware the Ides of March.”

A warning that has been become infamous due to the dramatic downfall of Roman dictator Julius Caesar. Shakespeare’s play follows not only Caesar’s feuding with his Senate, but the psychological turmoil and dilemma of loyalty of one of his friends, Brutus.

Political tensions mixed with personal jealousies drive conspirators to plan one of history’s most impactful assassinations. Does Brutus believe the plan is for the greater good of the Roman Empire? How does one justify the bloodshed of not only a ruler, but a friend?

Performed by the BA Acting Graduating Class of 2022 and part of Fourth Monkey’s Classic Season of shows, Julius Caesar is a story of violence, betrayal, and demonstrates the dark side of human nature.

The Duchess of Malfi

by John Webster
Directed by Poppy Rowley

A strong spirited duchess and her trustworthy lover Antonio defy the orders of her two brothers and secretly marry. 

The secrecy of their relationship becomes harder to conceal as they have three children, but the duchess is defiant against her corrupt brothers and refuses to name the father.

Will rejecting her brothers’ demands for the sake of love work in the duchess’ favour in the end?

Performed by the BA Acting Graduating Class of 2022 and part of Fourth Monkey’s Classic Season of shows, The Duchess of Malfi is one of the last great revenge tragedies of the Elizabethan/Jacobean era filled with secrets, guilt and betrayal.
