Rose Riot

Date: 9 Nov 2018

Sport for Jove celebrates 10 years of theatre-making with its most ambitious project to date: Damien Ryan’s new adaptation of Shakespeare’s history cycle, a hundred years of riotous humanity and violence.

“The history cycle is the work of a young Shakespeare tackling a wild, bold, daring, dangerous feat of storytelling and is among his most illuminating and prescient creations,” says Ryan. “It’s not just the extraordinary battles, political factionalism and its revolving door of new kings and queens, it is its sheer humanity that draws me to it. It is extravagant, violent, funny, fierce and very moving. It could be described as history’s greatest leadership spills.”

The cast includes company veterans James Lugton, Eloise Winestock, Bernadette Ryan, Tim Walter, Lizzie Schebesta, Francesca Savige, Christopher Stalley, Terry Karabelas and Christopher Tomkinson, who star alongside artists joining the festival for the first time, including Abe Mitchell, Emma Palmer, Bronwyn Lim and Damon Manns.
