Sooner shall the sun fall from his sphere Than Tamburlaine be slain or overcome

A lowly shepherd rises to power – and conquers half the known world.

A breathtaking interrogation of power, masculinity and the limits of violence.

“Sharp production distils to its cynical essence Marlowe’s big, blunt portrait of self-destructive, cyclical lust for power.”

Tom Wicker (Time Out, The Stage, Telegraph)

“A stylish simplicity... Despite a game cast and the clarity of the staging, this is not an easy play to like.”

Lyn Gardner (The Guardian)

“Marlowe's epic chronicle of conquest given a stylish minimalist treatment... The cast shines in the private, domestic moments.”

Rafaella Marcus (The Stage)

“Ping does too little to guide us through an episodic play and its jagged plot... The whole disintegrates into confusion.”

Matt Trueman (What's On Stage, Time Out)
