Show Information

“Love me or kill me, brother… Love me or kill me, sister.”

Giovanni and Annabella share a bond stronger than any other. They are passionately in love. They are also brother and sister. Determined to pursue their scandalous love affair no matter the consequences, the pair find themselves surrounded in a world of lies, lust, deception and revenge. In the end can love conquer all or will love destroy all?

This summer Sherman Players take on John Ford’s notoriously dark and bawdy classic ‘Tis Pity She’s a Whore. Four centuries since its inception this provocative and audacious Jacobean thriller is just as enthralling and controversial today as it would have been then.

Sherman Players is our drama group for ages 18+ - their previous productions have included Blue Stockings, The Government Inspector and As You Like It.
