The Village, a new adaptation of a classic play, opens at the Theatre Royal Stratford East
Friday 7 September, 2018 @ 7:30 pm - Saturday 6 October, 2018 @ 7:30 pm£10
Nadia Fall directs The Village which opens her first season as Artistic Director at the Theatre Royal Stratford East. The Village sets the drama in contemporary India against a background of political unrest and tells the story of a community fighting injustice. It is a new adaptation of Lope de Vega’s classic play, Fuenteovejuna, by April de Angelis.
Village life for Jyoti is simple: the people work hard, sing and live off the earth. She would much rather devour a delicious meal than think about a suitable partner.
But when the Inspector and his men arrive back in town, things quickly begin to sour. The Inspector’s reign of terror sees him commit unspeakable acts against the village with young Jyoti in his sights, pushing everyone to breaking point. Will she dare to reject his advances?
