Ten Plagues

13th March 7:30 pm - 10:00 pm

£2 - £25

Mark Ravenhill and Conor Mitchell’s award-winning AIDS polemic comes to Sherman Theatre, performed by Conor Mitchell and Matthew Cavan.

Tracing one man’s journey through a city in crisis, Ten Plagues charts the great plague of 1665. Part torch song, part Schubert, this is a ground-breaking piece of music-theatre.

Drawing its title from the biblical plagues and set in 1665 when the Black Death devastated London, this piece draws parallels with the 20th century emergence of AIDS – The Gay “Plague” as it was homophobically labelled in sections of the media – and the impact of living through the onslaught of that modern disease.
