Schiller's masterpiece about star-crossed lovers is a potent mix of tragedy and comedy. Read More >

Unable to conceal their desire for each other, Ferdinand and Louisa – a noble soldier and the daughter of a lowborn musician – are at odds with their entire society. An ambitious President is threatened, a powerful countess is rejected, a violinist is driven to a breakdown and the slick political operator, Worm, is hired to plot their separation.

Commemorating the 250th anniversary of Schiller’s birth, this production by Faction theatre company reveals the potent mix of tragedy and comedy in Intrigue / Love.
