Ten Plagues
Event type: 
Tuesday, March 13, 2018 -
19:30 to 21:00

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.
