WHORE On Tour

Following their triumphant productions of The Changeling (2006) and The Duchess of Malfi (1995), Cheek by Jowl have recently returned to Jacobean tragedy with a brand new production of John Ford’s classic play ‘Tis Pity She’s A Whore, starring JACK GORDON as Giovanni.

In this violent and bloody drama, we watch a brother and sister’s passionate descent into hell. Incest, morality, religion and corruption all intertwine to make this play as shocking and controversial today as it was almost four hundred years ago.

The show is directed by Declan Donnellan and designed by Nick Ormerod. It has been produced by Cheek by Jowl in co-production with the Barbican, London, Les Gémeaux/Sceaux/Scène Nationale and Sydney Festival. The production is currently on tour in France, where JACK has been receiving great reviews for his emotional and passionate performance in the leading role.

‘Tis Pity She’s A Whore is coming to the UK in the new year and touring, before arriving at the Barbican in February and moving on to New York in March.
