The same creative team who brought us the vivid and vibrant Anne Boleyn in 2012 now offer a real treat with their next spellbinding tale.

When Abelard begins a wild affair with his brilliant student Heloise, his enemies find the perfect pretext to destroy him. Abelard is already on thin ice with the church over his contentious views and when Heloise bears his child out of wedlock, their affair becomes the scandal of the age…

With its dynamic, contemporary language, stunning costumes and terrific live music, fiery philosophical debate and history burst into life in this energetic, visceral and above all highly entertaining production.

Following  triumphant seasons at Shakespeare’s Globe under the play's previous title In Extremis, audiences across the country now have the chance to revel in this funny, passionate and legendary love story.
