“Some things aren’t easy to tell.”

How could anyone kill their own father? One of the rarest and most shocking crimes known to man is interrogated in this daring new play, with the on-stage participation of convicted patricide Martin Santos.

An electrifying tale about retribution and justice, love and masculinity, Thebes Land has played sold-out runs in eight countries worldwide.

Now it premieres in London for four weeks only, starring Trevor White (Long Day’s Journey Into Night, West End; Enron, Royal Court) and Alex Austin (Fury, Soho Theatre; Yen, Royal Court).

Franco-Uruguayan playwright Sergio Blanco, one of Latin America’s most exciting voices, teams up with award-winning director Daniel Goldman to tease the boundaries between truth and lies, what you know and what you think you know.

a witty, unexpected show that boasts blistering performances in a beautifully calibrated production by Daniel Goldman, who also supplies the translation. – from The Guardian
