Print Room at the Coronet: Deathwatch
Print Room at The Coronet is pleased to present the first major revival in nearly thirty years of Deathwatch by Jean Genet, in a new translation by David Rudkin.
Informed by his own experience in French prisons, Jean Genet’s first play, Deathwatch is an explosive exploration of the inversion of moral order. Three young convicts share a cell. Locked into a world of dangerous rivalries, criminals Lefranc and Maurice compete for the attention of the charismatic condemned man, Green-Eyes.
Deathwatch was last presented in London in 1987 in a major production by the Royal Shakespeare Company. David Rudkin, whose plays include Ashes and Afore Night Come, provided the specially commissioned translation, which Print Room at the Coronet is now reviving. This production will be directed by Geraldine Alexander following the successful production of her own play Amygdala at the Print Room in 2013.
At the Print Room – 11 April – 7 May
