The Spanish Tragedie

The Spanish Tragedie is an Elizabethan tragedy written by Thomas Kyd between 1582 and 1592. Highly popular and influential in its time, The Spanish Tragedie established a new genre in English theatre, the Revenge Play or Revenge Tragedy. Containing several violent murders and a wide variety of characters, personifications and dumb shows, The Spanish Tragedy was often referred to (or parodied) by other Elizabethan playwrights, including William Shakespeare, Ben Jonson, and Christopher Marlowe.

The Baron’s Men will perform The Spanish Tragedie at The Curtain Theater in October/November of 2013.  This show will be performed in a near uncut state, in period costumes, and with period effects.
