A Revenger’s Tragedy

10th Apr 2008 - 8:00pm

Studio Theatre

Short Cuts is the North West’s newest film society.

Throughout the year, the Studio Theatre in Edge Hill University’s Centre for the Performing Arts will screen a diverse body of carefully selected films at a highly affordable price.

Posthumously named in honour of Robert Altman’s film of the same name, Short Cuts was formed by the Rose Theatre, the University’s Film Studies department and members of the local community.

A Season of Liverpool is a celebration of Liverpool’s status as European Capital of Culture.

The film A Revenger’s Tragedy (Alex Cox, 2002) is being screened on 10th April 2008.

Maverick film director Alex Cox brings his unique cinematic eye to bear on Thomas Middleton’s 1606 drama, A Revenger’s Tragedy. Relocating the action to a dystopian near-future Liverpool whilst maintaining most of the original dialogue, Cox provides an audacious, innovative and at times strikingly discordant account of murder and revenge.

The performance starts at 8pm. The Studio Theatre seats 140 and the film is projected onto a seven meter wide screen, accompanied by a Stereo Sound System. Entry is on a first-come, first-served basis although tickets can be purchased in advance.

Membership is available, £12 per annual membership (£10 concessions) and then £2 on the door. The cost for non-members is £3.50 on the door. Contact the Box Office on 01695 584480 for further information or visit www.edgehill.ac.uk/shortcuts.
