Theatre North presents a commentary on Herman Melville's classic novel of revenge, lust and murder from a bathtub (where else?)
Theatre North presents Mutiny, Murder and Male Desire...in a Brighton Bathroom.
Billy Budd is a tale of shipboard obsession and revenge by Herman Melville, the author of Moby Dick. This classic story of mutiny and male desire is set on board HMS Bellipotent in 1797.
As a modern gay man tells Billy Budds story, an ever-closer connection uncannily develops between them.
This ground breaking piece of close up theatre is brought to you from a bath in a terraced house in central Brighton. As this gripping story is told, more than one life is laid bare.
Billly Budd sailor will be performed from the 8TH-29TH May, at 22 Port Hall Place, Brighton at 3pm, 6-30pm and 9pm. Please note that only 6 people can view the performance at one time, and as the performance contains nudity, it is suitable for adults only.
