London’s internationally acclaimed theater troupe Cheek by Jowl’s mission is to re-examine classical texts and focus on the actor's art. Now, the company turns that focus to Jacobean-era dramatist John Ford’s tragedy of intrigue, incest and political machination with ‘Tis Pity She’s a Whore. Despite its shocking subject matter, the play is considered an English classic. In this violent and bloody drama, we watch a brother and sister's passionate descent into hell. Incest, morality, religion and corruption all intertwine to make this play as provocative and controversial today as it was 400 years ago. Le Figaro calls it “a masterpiece. An absolute must-see.”
