Massacre at Paris
New York, 2013
Co-Produced by Accidental Shakespeare Co. with support from Red Bull Theater
This adaptation explored the possibility that Shakespeare's Love's Labor's Lost was a prequel to Marlowe's Massacre at Paris. The play details the religious warfare between Protestant King Navarre and the Catholic French court with a documentary feel that focuses on the cost of religious warfare for nobles and commoners alike. The reading was presented outdoors to explore the mood of a massacre in the streets. Much of the original text has been lost, so this script featured a new narrator: Marlowe himself.
