Resurrection Blues Tickets

Old Vic TheatreLondon

High in the mountains of a South American banana republic, a revolution is brewing.

When the rebels’ messiah-like leader is captured, a New York production company swoops in to televise his execution – death by crucifixion – and an explosive chain of events ensues. Humorous, poetic and thought-provoking, Resurrection Blues brilliantly satirises misguided global politics and the predatory nature of a media-saturated culture.

One of the 20th cenutury’s finest playwrights, Arthur Miller’s landmark works include Death of a Salesman and The Crucible. This astonishing black comedy was completed just a month before his death. It is directed by Robert Altman, the legendary filmmaker, whose work includes Gosford Park, Short Cuts and Nashville.

A co-production with Scott Griffi
