I, Spie

12 June @ 7:30 pm

I-Spie

Centred around an extraordinary letter written by Renaissance composer/lutenist John Dowland to spymaster Sir Robert Cecil in 1595, this spell-binding concertplay (where music and theatre collide) by award-winning writer Clare Norburn and BAFTA-nominated director Nicholas Renton imagines what might have happened next.

I, Spie tells the story of how John Dowland manages to foil an Italian plot on the life of Queen Elizabeth I and his ensuing grisly dealings with the Secret Service. Think Blackadder meets Spooks, 16th Century-style! But ultimately, Dowland’s fate is in your hands as you’ll vote on how the show should end.

The drama is accompanied by music by John Dowland and his contemporaries, alongside Elizabethan tavern, street and courtly masque music performed by The Telling.
