By Johann Wolfgang Von Goethe, translated and directed by Robert David MacDonald.

Goethe claimed to have written his 1774 romantic tragedy `Clavigo' in a week.

It was based on then-recent true events and tells the story of a playwright who travels to Spain to avenge his sister, who has been abandoned by her betrothed, a writer wishing to further his career.

With Brendan Hooper (Clavigo), Derwent Watson (Carlos), Jay Manley (Buenco), Andrew Joseph (Beaumarchais), Candida Benson (Sophie) and Katherine Burford (Marie).
