Revolution will Eat its own Children
Directed by Stephen Simms
Choreography by Maria Blundell-Palethorpe
Composition by Rob Roberts
An exciting new physical theatre production.
‘The Terror’ is the name historians give to the darkest and most bloody part of the French Revolution, whose leaders were eventually murdered by their own followers: a pattern which has repeated across the centuries.
This production mixes film, music and live action, as characters and events from history crash into each other.
What happens when revolutionary barbarity and media celebrity collide? Will Marie Antoinette marry, snog, or kill President Kennedy? What terrors unfold when truth and lies are the same thing, and the ugly sisters drown Cinderella?
Visually stunning, this original production is unsettling, funny and beautiful.
This production contains adult themes.
Comp booking deadline for staff and students: midnight Sunday 10th March 2019. Booking is one ticket per staff/student only; general tickets can be bought via the Crescent Theatre's website. If you no longer require your ticket, please cancel your booking prior to the performance date.
Please note: if you are booking complimentary staff/student tickets, it may not be possible to purchase full price seats adjacent to the comp seats as the Main House operates a reserved seating plan. The Crescent will try to accommodate where available at their discretion, but please be aware this might not always be possible.
