Theatre Royal Bury St Edmunds Production
THE LONDON MERCHANT
by George Lillo – first performed at the Theatre Royal Drury Lane on 22 June 1731
directed by Colin Blumenau, designed by Kit Surrey, lighting designed by Mark Howland
The courtesan Millwood has vowed her revenge on Man. Exquisite, seductive and cruel, she sets her corrupt and decadent eye on innocent apprentice, George Barnwell. Respected by his peers, praised by his London merchant master, and loved by the pretty Maria – the world is at his feet. With a flourishing career ahead of him, he has everything to lose as she, Black Widow-like, draws him into a vortex of illegal and immoral activity which signals his doom and her ultimate revenge.
Presented ‘in the round’ see the Theatre Royal as you have never seen it before.
