The Seven Pomegranate Seeds
Rose Theatre, Kingston
4-20 November 2021
From the director of My Brilliant Friend (National Theatre transfer, 2019) and Captain Corelli’s Mandolin (West End transfer, 2019) comes the world premiere of Colin Teevan’s The Seven Pomegranate Seeds.
Seven contemporary stories grounded in prominent, mythical origins. Persephone, Hypsipyle, Medea, Alcestis, Phaedra, Creusa and Demeter: the women of Euripides' plays are reimagined as people of today in an unexpected fusion of celebrity, inappropriate desires, historical police investigations and missing children.
A severed maternal bond threads each story together, charting a journey through rage and redemption, towards a compelling conclusion.
Starring Rose Associate Artist Niamh Cusack (My Brilliant Friend) and Shannon Hayes (Ted Lasso Series 1 & 2, Apple TV).
Role: Set and Costume Associate Designer
