A little-known Caroline-era play was recently staged for the first time in almost four centuries; the winner of a competition between academics to resurrect an obscure work at the Royal Shakespeare Company’s theatre. Unearthed anew, this rare tragedy comes to the McCallum stage.
Struck by love at first sight, the Duke of Pavia has married the beautiful Bianca. But he's not the only one who loves her. Unknown to him, his best friend Fernando has also fallen for Bianca, and with each day that passes Fernando finds it harder to conceal his true feelings. While the Duke is unaware of his friend's dilemma, his sister soon realizes what is happening. Racked with jealousy by her own desire for Fernando, she begins to manipulate her brother, encouraging him to act against his friend. With echoes of Shakespeare's Othello, John Ford's rarely performed play is a thrilling revenge tragedy powered by the destructive force of unrequited love.
MacTheatre proudly presents John Ford’s powerful revenge tragedy, Love’s Sacrifice.
Originally published in 1633 and based upon a true story, Love’s Sacrifice was recently staged for the first time in almost four centuries. It was the winning play in a competition between academics who were challenged to resurrect an obscure work at the Royal Shakespeare Company’s theatre. With echoes of Shakespeare's Othello, John Ford's play is a thrilling tragedy powered by the destructive force of unrequited love.
