The production will have an initially limited run at the venue from the 17th to the 20th September.

Sotto Voce has announced the world premiere of new comedy Renaissance by Charles Ward, which will take place outdoors at the Stephens House and Gardens for a limited run.

Directed by Emma Butler, the production is set to star BAFTA and Olivier nominated Haydn Gwynne (Billy Elliot (West End and Broadway) Drop the Dead Donkey, Camilla in C4s The Windsors) and James Corrigan (Edmund in King Lear (West End). They will be joined on stage by Bethan Cullinane as Caterina Sforza, Hannah Morrish as Lucrezia Borgia, Akshay Sharan as Leonardo da Vinci, Nicholas Limm as Niccolò Machiavelli.

It’s a mystery that has been tantalizing historians for centuries. For a short time in 1502, Leonardo da Vinci, Niccolò Machiavelli, and Cesare Borgia (whose fight for power was a major inspiration for ‘The Prince’ by Machiavelli), were all living under the same roof. This new comedy uses bold brushstrokes to re-imagine the interaction of these three extraordinarily charismatic and talented men, played by James Corrigan (Borgia), Akshay Sharan (da Vinci) and Nicholas Limm (Machiavelli).

At the moment, the play is set to have a limited run from the 17th to the 20th September but has plans to extend beyond the end of the month, if weather and current Covid restrictions permit.
