lady grey

Photos: Richard Nicholson & Tim Nunn

A group of people stand on a knife edge. Political intriguers, hysterical sympathisers and an ambivalent executioner find themselves witness to the last minutes before the execution of an innocent woman. A man above walks across them on a tightrope playing the violin.

Lady Grey was inspired by Paul Delaroche's painting that hangs in London's National Gallery The Execution of Lady Jane Grey.

Lady Grey is set to a score for string quartet. It is twenty minutes long.

"It is through this theatrical vision, which stands apart from its painted inspiration, that we see how easily we are blinded by words"The Times
