Mark Ravenhill and Conor Mitchell’s award-winning song cycle comes
to Sherman Theatre on Tues 13 Mar 7.30pm.
 Written by internationally acclaimed playwright Mark Ravenhill and Sherman Theatre Associate Artist Conor Mitchell, this astonishingly original piece comes to Cardiff’s Sherman Theatre for one night only in a new production.
After sell out seasons in Edinburgh and London, an album and numerous awards, Ten Plagues has gone down in history as a seminal work in the song-cycle genre. Part torch song, part Schubert, this groundbreaking piece of music-theatre traces one man's journey through a city in crisis, the great plague of 1665 and draws parallels with the 20th century emergence of AIDS.
Originally written for and performed by the singer Marc Almond, THE BELFAST ENSEMBLE re- stages the work with the composer at the piano. Almond’s role will be re-imagined by cult cabaret drag artist Matthew Cavan - aka ‘Cherrie-on-Top’. With their trademark combination of music, live performance and video, this is a rare chance to see a landmark UK work.
Following the performance there will be a post-show discussion between Mark Ravenhill and Sherman Theatre’s Artistic Director Rachel O’Riordan, this post-show event is free to ticket holders.
