The Bloody Chamber
    By Angela Carter, Bryony Lavery

    23:00, Wed 20th – Sat 23rd November 2019 at ADC Theatre
    Michaelmas Week 6

    Bryony Lavery’s adaptation of Angela Carter’s dark fairytale is a story of seduction, perversion, blood and love. A 17 year old girl marries a wealthy French Marquis, and upon returning to his home she quickly discovers his sadistic tendencies, and her attentions turn to the home’s blind piano tuner. When her husband is called away on business on their wedding night, she is left with only his keys and one room off-limits, her curiosity leads her to make a haunting discovery, leaving her future uncertain. Carter’s work brings feminism and a gothic twist to a traditional tale, and Lavery’s adaptation sees the story reimagined once more for the stage.
