The Two Noble Kinswomen

Wednesday, 27th March, 7:30 pm - Saturday, 30th March, 7:30 pm

Palamon and Arcite are soldiers, nobles and lovers… and, after losing a battle against Athens, they’re now prisoners of war.

When they both fall in love with Emilia, the sister of the Duchess of Athens, they must use their arsenal of skills to outwit both the Athenian nobles and each other to win her hand.

From the people behind the cult hit Spot the Difference comes a modern take on a classic play: The Two Noble Kinswomen, written by William Shakespeare and John Fletcher and (liberally) adapted and directed by Benny Marama.
Starring Emma Koretz and Lily Empson as the titular kinswomen and featuring a diverse cast of strong women, The Two Noble Kinswomen is an exploration of the tyranny of love.

A celebration of all types of love, The Two Noble Kinswomen interweaves elements of Queer and Pasifika culture to create a multicultural, genderqueer, eleganza EXTRAVAGANZA (thanks, Mama Ru).

Shows are at 7:30pm from the 27th to the 30th of March.
