Dwane Walcott (2012 Graduate) is performing on the Olivier stage at the National Theatre as Cherinos in Tirso de Molina’s Damned by Despair, directed by Bijan Sheibani. Playing until 17th December 2012.
Saintly Paulo discovers he’s doomed to share the fate of a complete stranger, Enrico. Then he meets Enrico for himself and realises he’s evil incarnate. If he’s damned, is Paulo too?
17th century Naples and gang culture collide spectacularly in Damned by Despair, a Spanish classic brought to life in vivid modern language by Frank McGuinness.
NT Associate Director Bijan Sheibani brings this epic production to the Olivier stage following the success of his previous work at the National Theatre including The Kitchen and Our Class.
