The School of Night by Peter Whelan
London Academy of Music and Dramatic Art (3 yr. Acting)
Performances take place at the LAMDA Linbury Studio, W14 9DA
One the most famous wordsmiths of all time, Christopher Marlowe, or ‘Kit’ as he’s known to his friends, is a hunted man. Accused of atheism, Kit is also the supposed holder of a list of members of The School of Night, a secret society centred around Sir Walter Raleigh, infamous for its exploration of scientific and theological questions.
As the noose tightens around Kit’s neck, it is only Rosalinda Benotti, the Venetian leading lady from his latest play, Dido & Aeneas, who believes in him. A gripping exploration of political pressure and espionage, Peter Whelan’s The School of Night also investigates the myriad motivations which drive a great artist.
