‘The Mourning Bride’ is a 21st century Merseyside story of love, power, jealousy and revenge. It is Marlowe’s Edward II as never seen before. A stage play following the twists and turns of excess, lust, and betrayal. Following a successful run in December 2019 this play has been extended to 90 minutes and returns to the Hope Street Theatre in March 2020.

A rejected woman is to be avoided, but what happens when the whole cast is made up of women?
“Heaven has no rage like love to hatred turned Nor hell a fury like a woman scorned.”
William Congreve (1697) The Mourning Bride

“Morgan’s script flows really well with sharp and on-the-ball dialogue throughout …. a lively piece with some great evocative moments.”
“The all-female cast … performed with energy and precision under the keen direction of Zara Marie Brown.”
