Rough Magic in association with TheEmergencyRoom present their acclaimed WORLD PREMIERE production of "Sodome. ma douce" by Laurent Gaudé
The sky breaks, the rain falls. The downpour slowly awakens a woman buried in salt for centuries, the only survivor of Sodome, a city once filled with joy and excess, freedom and sensuality. Here, now amongst us, she begins to speak. This is her story...
This exciting new production is directed by Rough Magic’s Artistic Director Lynne Parker and stars Olwen Fouéré in her most striking role to date.
The outstanding creative team include: John Comiskey (Designer) Monica Frawley (Costumes) and Denis Clohessy (Music & Sound).
