Sometimes the one you love ... isn't the one you want.

Beatrice hires a hitman to murder her fiance, only to become trapped in a vortex of lust and deceit. Every virtue pales beside her sins.

Few Jacobean tragedies match The Changeling for sheer audacity. In it, energy takes the form of sexual desire as the two protagonists, Beatrice and De Flores, plunge into the sick heart of compulsion.

Michael Hurst brings his trademark intensity to this remarkable piece. Filled with strikingly modern psychological insights, and concerned as it is with the darker side of human nature, this play remains a vivid and potent reminder of the dangers of self-delusion.

In a ferociously intimate production, featuring Anthea Freya Hill as Beatrice and Mel Odedra as the loathsome De Flores, Hurst and his cast will dive headlong into the claustrophobic world of obsessive sexuality.

Play dumb. Play dirty. Play false.
