The Cave

A three week run of the previously unperformed play by Mervyn Peake, will begin on 19th October 2010. The Blue Elephant Theatre, Bethwin Road, London SE5 will stage the powerful piece, which follows the fortunes of the same family set against a background of three distinctly different periods in human history.

In the dramatic denouement; at a read-through the invited audience gasped as one, a degree of resolution to the central theme of the play is reached, though the prevailing metaphor is a questioning of one's very existence.

Telephone 020 7701 0100 for further information.

How exciting! I have always wanted to see Peake's plays on stage and will certainly go.
