Caritas

The Kings Head Theatre in Islington, home to Opera Up Close, is giving a rare outing to Robert Saxton's opera Caritas based on the play by Arnold Wesker. It concerns a young woman who is immured up in a cell as an anchorite during the middle ages. A powerful piece, it is great to see this sort of work appearing amidst the standard repertoire. There are just 10 performances starting 20th May, further information here.

At the same time, the theatre are presenting Arnold Wesker's play Denial, starting 15th May, further information here.
