10 - 15 December

7:45pm
The Love of The NightingaleProgress Theatre presents:
The Love of The Nightingale
Progress Theatre, The Mount, Christchurch Road, Reading

by Timberlake Wertenbaker
Directed by: Ali Carroll
Presented by Progress Youth Theatre - Floodlights and Blinders Groups

Love, War, Violence. Loyalty and Betrayal. Being Silent, Being Silenced. Premonition. Death. Revenge.

These themes are poignantly addressed in Wertenbaker's adaptation of the myth of Tereus, Procne and Philomele, compellingly re-told weaving in traditional aspects of Greek theatre with a modern flavour.

When Tereus, King of Thrace, marries into the Royal Family of Athens, the gods wake up and, as Procne warns, it is never a good thing when the gods wake up and look at you. The beautiful, innocently passionate Philomele is caught up in a tragic chain of events, witnessed (or not?) by a Chorus, who are there "to simply record".

Not suitable for very young audiences due to scenes of physical and sexual violence.

Tickets: on 0118 960 6060, online at www.readingarts.co.uk and in person at the Hexagon or Town Hall
