Theatre by the Lake
Giovanni loves Annabella; Annabella loves Giovanni. But there is a problem: they are brother and sister. Their love is both a scandal and a sin.
They pursue their forbidden passion, defying society and the Catholic Church, a decision that leads to a web of lies, deception, intrigue and revenge which culminates in inevitable violence and bloodshed.
This chamber version of John Ford’s classic – and notorious – tragedy is Theatre by the Lake’s first venture into the dark, sensual world of Jacobean revenge drama.
