Season 2013

The Bloody Chamber

Information

A young woman yields to her desire for luxury and marries a rich – and very dangerous – man. Abandoned by her husband on their wedding night, he offers her instead the keys to the castle – so long as she doesn’t enter the secret room…

Angela Carter’s wicked treatment brings playful eroticism to the legendary story of the sinister Bluebeard and his ‘missing’ wives.With a haunting live score and Logie Award-winning actress Alison Whyte embodying every heroine and beast in a tour-de-force performance, The Bloody Chamber is a chilling and lavish theatrical event.

Carter's Gothic vision is realised with integrity; Whyte gives a tour de force performance, bending the stage to her will and being monstered by it in turns.
