During May Week 2008, The Marlowe Society are presenting the world premiere of Comus: An Anti Mask, a new work in verse by the celebrated poet John Kinsella. Simon Godwin, a professional director, will be directing the piece. Simon is former Associate Director of the Royal and Derngate Theatres in Northampton and has produced work at the West Yorkshire Playhouse, The Gate Theatre, BAC and in the West End. He is looking to recruit the show’s creative team from undergraduate and post-graduates students.
Two brothers and their sister, lost in a wood. Captured by the debauched Comus, and brought to his pleasure palace, she must battle against the forces of indulgence and pleasure. Can she sustain her purity?
