The second production in this year’s play season, a firecracker of a historical drama based on an extraordinary true story…
THE HERESY OF LOVE by Helen Edmundson
In the late 1600s, in a convent in Mexico, a gifted and progressive writer finds herself at the centre of a deadly battle between two Princes of the Church. Celebrated by the royalty but silenced by the Church, she is betrayed by the very people she thought she could trust.
Inspired by the life of sister Juana Inés de la Cruz, The Heresy of Love uses all the devices of Spanish Golden Age Theatre – intrigue and danger, passion and politics, comedy and tragedy – in this clash between organised religion and personal faith.
