By John Ford
Cheek by Jowl
Directed by Declan Donnellan
Designed by Nick Ormerod

“When your guides are as magically accomplished as Declan Donnellan and Nick Ormerod… you can truly go with the flow with no fear of drowning.”
—The New York Times

The internationally acclaimed Cheek by Jowl (Macbeth, 2011 Spring Season) returns to BAM with John Ford's 'Tis Pity She's a Whore, one of the most controversial plays in the English theatrical canon. Siblings Giovanni and Annabella are of noble birth and madly in love. Full of the idealism of youth, their passion is all-consuming-and can only bring about their ruin. With the men of Parma ready to fight and kill for Annabella's hand, religion, morality, and madness all collide as the brother and sister's terrible secret is revealed.

Cheek by Jowl is Declan Donnellan (director) and Nick Ormerod (designer). Working with an ever-changing and always extraordinary company of actors, they are world-renowned for their minimalist stagings of Shakespeare and other classic texts.

Co-produced with the Barbican, London; Les Gémeaux/Sceaux/Scène Nationale; and Sydney Festival.
