Ricky Dukes: Marlowe and Me

The Rose Playhouse

An online event beginning at 7.00 pm

Ricky is the Artistic Director of Lazarus Theatre Company, which is the resident company at Greenwich Theatre. He will be sharing his experience of directing Christopher Marlowe's plays, focusing on Lazarus's new digital ensemble production of Dr Faustus. He will also explore with us the challenges, opportunities and importance of staging Marlowe’s plays today.


Over the past 14 years, Ricky Dukes has directed productions of more than 40 plays, including Marlowe’s Tamburlaine the Great, Edward II and Dido, Queen of Carthage as well as plays by Sophocles, Shakespeare and Brecht. In addition to his work with Lazarus Theatre, Ricky has assisted at the National Theatre, ENO and Regent’s Park Open Air Theatre.
