A Restoration

Artwork for Provok'd

As a group of actors come together to rehearse period scenes, a rising sense of anarchy bubbles up as they question which stories deserve to be retold.

Restoration Comedy collides with original rap and hip hop, challenging the parallels between a vicious and vibrant moment in theatrical history and a contemporary questioning of sexuality, gender politics and race.

This original drama production is written and devised by The Company of Guildhall School. Find out more in this workshop diary extract from director Jamie Bradley.
