by Timberlake Wertenbaker
presented by the Rough Fiction Ensemble (
in association with The Actor's Centre

This ever-changing production is designed to appear at a different venue every weekend combining Wertenbaker's beautiful, witty and strikingly resonant play with live choral folk singing and percussion. Set against the backdrop of war, The Love of The Nightingale reveals two Athenian sisters caught in a triangle of desire and revenge. 14 – 24 actors play different roles at each new venue and present a stripped back version of this classic myth placing the audience at the heart of the action.

'A stunning adaptation of the Philomele myth written with grace, authority and economy'
