Easter Week 1
Corruption and weakness plague the Persian realm. Brothers bicker, loyalties are abandoned and rebellion is in the air. Power, language and authority verge on collapse.
From the east comes a Shepherd; part man, part God, brutal and poetic in the same moment.

'For what are kings, when regiment is gone, but perfect shadows in a sunshine day?'
The New Arcadians present 'Tamburlaine the Great, Part 1' - a condensed, fast paced and modernised version of Marlowe's ludicrously popular play.
