Persephone Tickets London - at Hoxton Hall | Thespie

Professor Charlotte Hawthorne’s students would lie, cheat and steal for her. And her brightest student, Masha Murray has done all three. When Masha arrives at her reclusive professor’s estate expecting to find the Professor waiting, she instead finds the house guarded by a most peculiar Gardener. In each other the two women find potential to face either their greatest fear, or their own salvation, if they are brave enough. ​Performed at dusk in the Hoxton Trust Community Gardens, this new one-act play – written during lockdown – explores the impact of grief and the price of believing in something unbelievable. The title Persephone alludes to the Greek myth of Goddess Demeter’s daughter whose capture by the dark lord of the Underworld, Hades, throws Demeter into despair and results in the invention of winter. The myth tells of Persephone’s return and thus the return of the Spring: pain is turned into something beautiful.
