The Massacre at Paris
    By Christopher Marlowe

    23:00, Wed 12th February 2014 - Sat 15th February 2014 at ADC Theatre
    Lent Week 4

    'Let none escape, murder the Huguenots.

    Kill them, kill them.'

    Paris is on edge. France is at war with itself as Protestant and Catholic vie for control. The King of France decides that it is time to remove the 'threat' once and for all while his loyal advisor, the Duke of Guise maintains his own pursuit of power. And so begins one of the bloodiest massacres of French history.

    As part of the 450th Anniversary, this short play of Marlowe's about the St Bartholomew's Day Massacre is set to shock in exploring this brutal event instigated by brutal people in a modern day context.

    No one is safe.
