After a sell-out run this summer, IF iT BE LOVE - a unique theatrical event featuring music and Shakespeare in promenade performance – is returning to historic Rotherhithe.
SATURDAY NOVEMBER 10th 7:30pm
SUNDAY NOVEMBER 11th 3:30pm
Following the extraordinarily well received, summer production, IF iT BE LOVE is back by popular demand for two performances only. Tunnel, set up by a group of enterprising young actors and musicians, will once again be taking its programme of original music and Shakespeare on a tour through some of Rotherhithe’s most iconic and atmospheric landmarks. They will include the Brunel Museum, the original site of the world’s first underwater tunnel, the studios of Oscar-winning costume makers Sands Films, housed in a converted Thameside Granary, and 18th-century St Mary’s Church, steeped in maritime history.
IF iT BE LOVE follows a woman's journey through some of Shakespeare's most celebrated scenes. The show explores themes of love, death, honour, power and heartbreak through extracts from Antony and Cleopatra, Hamlet, Macbeth and Othello.
Starring Robert Emms (Kick Ass 2, War Horse, Anonymous), Ako Mitchell (Spelling Bee, Sister Act, Lion King), Alice Bird (Anastasia, Notes on a Scandal), and Neve Faulkner (I am an Emotional Creature), IF iT BE LOVE is directed by Daniel Ben-Zenou, with music by George Bird.
IF iT BE LOVE is a companion piece to the upcoming feature film of the same name directed by Filip L. Firlej and due for release spring of 2013.
