On white, gay privilege

Three large, blood red cubes spin to reveal their contents to the audience: a couple fornicating in one, a nun praying in another, and a hooded man condemned to die in the third. The stage has become a strange, uneasy, intense space of the psyche.

There has been a crackdown on the licentious folk of Vienna, whose duke, Vincentio (Alexander Arsentyev), hands “absolute power” to his deputy, Angelo (Andrei Kuzichev) – a “man of stricture and firm abstinence” – before slipping into a friar’s disguise to watch this stage-managed authoritarian rule from nearby.

Warren, in his late 40s, played by Simon Burke, waves away the panic of his husband Kim (Simon Corfield), and offers to fix them martinis. As the lithe, 30-something Kim drops to the ground and crawls on all fours, Warren considers buying him a dog as therapy.
