Review: The Revenger’s Tragedy, LAMDA at the Pleasance Theatre

Another enjoyable performance from LAMDA. There’s lots of lust for blood and lots of lust for sex in this lurid melodrama. The direction was good, playing some parts for laughs, some for tragedy to add variation to a rather relentless story of men plotting and carrying out revenge, with lots of corpses and the odd severed head. As to be expected from LAMDA, the production is low cost but the principal roles are well acted, particularly by David Young as Vindici and Sam McAvoy as Lussurioso. There are still a few more performances and they are completely free, so if you’ve never seen this infamous Thomas Middleton play then grab this chance.
