Cheek By Jowl brings its hit 2012 production of the potent tragedy of incest, ‘Tis Pity She’s A Whore, back to the Barbican.

John Ford’s Jacobean drama is brought into a contemporary setting by the Barbican Artistic Associates, as it tells vividly and violently the tale of a brother and sister’s descent into hell as they break one of society’s final taboos.

‘Tis Pity She’s A Whore contains adult themes and is suitable for theatergoers aged 16 and older.

Unlike film, theatre doesn't have an official age classification organisation. That means all age recommendations are subjective and should be treated as guidelines unless otherwise stated. With this in mind, we ask you to use your judgement in regards to a show’s suitability prior to purchase. However, we are more than happy to help you make a decision.
