This spell-binding new “concert-play” (where music and theatre collide) by Clare Norburn tells the story of composer/lutenist John Dowland’s brush with the Secret Service and how he manages to foil an Italian plot on the life of Queen Elizabeth I. Think Spooks meets Blackadder. But ultimately, John's fate is in the hands of the audience who will vote on how the show should end. Plus, ahead of the show, you'll be invited to crack the all-important code.
The drama is directed by Nicholas Renton (BAFTA-nominated Mrs Gaskell's Wives and Daughters, Musketeers, A Room With A View, Lewis, Silent Witness).
The playwright, Clare Norburn, is also the soprano and Artistic Director of The Telling, who are renowned for immersing audiences in a world of music and theatre. They will perform music by Dowland and his contemporaries, alongside Elizabethan tavern, street and courtly masque music.
