Noontide Sun and Christopher Hunter

Venus and Adonis

C primo (hill street studio)

Genre: Theatre
Sub-genre: classical, drama

‘Sexually Experienced Woman Seduces Beautiful Virgin Boy’ Written during the plague outbreak of 1592 that shut London’s theatres, Venus and Adonis was Shakespeare’s first published work, and an instant bestseller. The vivid language and youthful vibrancy of the poetry make it an exhilarating ride. But the eroticism of the pounding narrative conceals dark and disturbing themes about love, desire and sexual power. Christopher Hunter re-imagines Shakespeare’s narrative poem as a one-man play exploring what lies behind a tale of rejected lust played out against the highest stakes.
