About

Theatre Lab Company bring Moliere's DON JUAN to Hoxton Hall, This follows their acclaimed SALOME at Hoxton Hall in February 2017, and recent applauded production of Daphne du Maurier's JAMAICA INN at Tabard Theatre. Charming... egocentric... atheist... philanderer... recently wed, Don Juan is about to commit adultery against his new wife. Accompanied by his servant, Sganarelle, he sets out in pursuit of his next amorous conquest. Sganarelle challenges his master's libertine views as the pair engages in a hilarious philosophical debate to defend their equally self-serving moralities. Don Juan... remorseless, unrepentant... has a voracious libido. Sganarelle... clever, pious but ambitious. Set against the backdrop of the Venice Carnival, DON JUAN is a black comedy that follows the last day of the legendary playboy's life. The legendary playboy's notorious exploits have captured the imaginations of playwrights, poets and composers for stage, opera and screen. Lord Byron, Mozart (Don Giovanni), Patrick Marber (Don Juan in Soho) and Johnny Depp (Don Juan de Marcos) amongst others have been inspired by the tale.
