18th Century London is a world of sexual gossip, extravagance and greed.

Yet in a world of reputation and rumour all may not be as it seems. Left under the charge of Sir Peter Teazle by their wealthy uncle, the only thing the brothers seem to have in common is their interest in the young heiress, Maria. Conspiring with the malicious and scheming Lady Sneerwell is Joseph really interested in love? When their rich uncle returns from India unrecognized and determined to test the brother characters, can bold invention triumph over truth?

Cast includes: Rebecca Burnett, Jim Chadburn, Sinead Davies, Turan Duncan,Tim Fordyce, Suzy Gill, Georgia Hull, Catherine Irlam, Martin Sales, Vicki Sergent, Thom Short, Donna Marie Smith, Ian Springer, Lizzie Stanton and Christine White.

EDWARD II

by Christopher Marlowe

When Edward inherits the throne from his stern and all conquering father, he is determined to rule his way. To the horror of the lords and bishops he recalls his basely born male lover and demands even the proudest should stoop before his favourite. With a young son to protect, Queen Isabella finds herself ignored and humiliated by her erratic and emotional husband. Will Edward’s actions push her into the arms of the power hungry and rebellious Mortimer? Marlowe’s action packed thriller brings to the stage England’s most notorious monarch. Obsessed with his desires and disinterested in duty, the country is collapsing. Foreign powers stand on the verge of invasion as the nation's leaders are locked in deadly hate. Can you stay loyal to your king when he may destroy the country you love? Does monstrous treason become the only option? Will revenge, murder and rebellion leave Edward in a daily diet of heartbreaking sobs? As the rebels take arms, the country is led into a land as yet unknown.   Marlowe’s provocative and profound play asks us ‘What are kings when regiment is gone, but perfect shadows in a sunshine day?’ Venture Wolf presents England’s most mesmerising monarch, infamous Queen and greatest traitor in a dangerous tale of power, loyalty and lust.

AN IDEAL HUSBAND

Will Robert be able to save both his morals and his marriage or will his career become just another political scandal?

Set in an all too recognizable Westminster world, Venture Wolf Productions is proud to present a new version of Oscar Wilde’s classic comedy An Ideal Husband for the 2014 Camden Fringe.

Old rivalries return to the surface and playful masculine violence spills to the street, will two young lovers desire for each spiral the battle between families into a dangerous game of life and death?

Two volatile young leaders Tybalt and Mecutio locked in conflict seek to establish their own identities. Traditional values are directly challenged by a youth that refuses to be bound by their parents’ rules. Society’s control is slipping as neither young nor old understand the tense new world around them. In the midst of all this can two teenagers escape and find solace and in each other’s arms?

In a town where oppression and fighting are rife can love ever be tender? As generations, and families seek to assert their control over an ever changing world will love prove too rough, too rude, and to boisterous to survive?
