The Tragedy of Thomas Hobbes

Adriano Shaplin

PaperBack (01 Nov 2008)
London 1658. The Civil War is over, the King has been executed, Oliver Cromwell has closed the theatres and the talk in the coffee-houses is of revolution. Meanwhile England's most famous philosopher is poised to do battle with a faction of young scientists.

The Tragedy of Thomas Hobbes brings vividly to life a period of history when science was the new theatre and philosophy became a new faith. It is a provocative and experimental journey back to a time of dead dogs, new gods and apparent miracles.

The Tragedy of Thomas Hobbes was commissioned by the RSC and performed at Wilton's Music Hall in 2008.
