Michael Longhurst’s production of ’Tis Pity She’s a Whore is currently playing at the Sam Wanamaker Playhouse (until 7 December 2014).

Designed by Alex Lowde and composed by Simon Slater, this exciting new production of John Ford’s dark, sensual and violent play is performed in the shadowy intimacy of the candlelit Wanamaker Playhouse.

Max Bennett and Fiona Button star as Giovanni and Annabella, the siblings whose doomed incestuous passion both threatens and throws into relief the incense-laden hypocrisy of the Italian court.

Olivier Award-winning actress Noma Dumezweni takes the role of Hippolita, with Friar Bonaventure played by Michael Gould.

The full cast is Max Bennett, Stefano Braschi, Fiona Button, Sam Cox, Philip Cumbus, Noma Dumezweni, James Garnon, Michael Gould, Alice Haig, Dean Nolan, Jethro Skinner, Daniel Rabin, Morag Siller, Edward Peel
