"In London
Came the plague in 1665
One Hundred Thousand Dead
But I alive"

The award winning song cycle Ten Plagues arrives at Wilton’s following it's hugely successful premiere at Edinburgh’s Festival Fringe in August 2011.

Based on eye-witness accounts of the 1665 London Plague, Ten Plagues depicts an incredible journey through London in the midst the most deadly Plague imaginable. A one-man solo sung performance by Marc Almond, Ten Plagues brings together the worlds of music, theatre and opera in a deeply moving and profoundly relevant piece of theatre.

This collaboration between playwright Mark Ravenhill and composer Conor Mitchell, previewed as a work-in-progress at as part of the Royal Court's Rough Cuts 2010 season.

Featuring aromas from the streets of London, imagine the wooden buildings, the traders and the Lavender sellers. Created by Geraldine Howard, co-founder of Aromatherapy Associates.

"It's moving, thought-provoking and allusive to contemporary contagions (Ravenhill is HIV-positive), and seeing it inside a building erected within the lifespan of plague survivors, on the very streets it affected, adds to its power."
The Independent

"Hypnotic, mesmerizing and heart-stoppingly beautiful. Almond is a revelation to behold" The New York Times

In association with the Traverse Theatre
Original Production Directed by Stewart Laing
Ten Plagues was first produced by and presented at the Traverse Theatre Company August 2011
