Sport for Jove and Seymour Centre present


by William Shakespeare

24 - 28 Mar 2020

“Thank you for putting such time and effort into this show. It was brilliant. The kids were just rapt.”

Drama Teacher, Barker College


On a remote military base in an occupied country, a trusted yet devious soldier works away at the certainties of his commander like a creeping tide. Venice and Cyprus become the battlefields upon which love, trust and jealousy are put on the severest trial.


Combining Sport for Jove’s trademark textual clarity with a powerful cast and design, your students will gain deeper comprehension from experiencing this brooding thriller live.


Relentless, dark, and even darkly funny, no Shakespearean play offers a more modern examination of contemporary political tensions. See Sport for Jove’s innovative production before it embarks on a tour to one of the world’s largest theatre festivals, Festival Iberoamericano de Teatro de Bogotá in Colombia.
