SUMMARY

Directed by Jenny Stephens

A story of ambition, desire, jealousy and betrayal, The Heresy of Love was premiered at the RSC in 2012 to great critical acclaim and five-star reviews.

In a convent in Mexico in the seventeenth century, Sister Juana Inés de la Cruz combines her devotion to God with success as a poet and playwright and is very much in favour with the court.

A particularly zealous archbishop arrives, bringing with him the attitudes and rigours of the Spanish Inquisition and so sets off a dramatic chain of events in which Sister Juana's fragile world is threatened by malicious betrayal.

Inspired by the true-life story of Sister Juana and her life in the Hieronymite Convent, The Heresy of Love explores this woman's life with a passion and intellectual rigour worthy of its subject.
