about

In the late 1600s, in a convent in Mexico, a gifted and progressive writer finds herself at the centre of a deadly battle of ideas. Celebrated by the Court but silenced by the Church, she is betrayed by the very people she thought she could trust.

Inspired by the extraordinary life of Sor Juana Inés de la Cruz, Helen Edmundson's The Heresy of Love is a powerful drama about a clash between organised religion and personal faith, full of intrigue and danger, ruthless ambitions and illicit desire.

Premiered by the RSC in 2012, The Heresy of Love was revived in a new production at Shakespeare’s Globe, London, in 2015.

'Superb... an instant classic' - Daily Mail

'The great quality of Edmundson’s play is that it has the sweep, the intrigue, and the bold theatrical effects of the original Spanish Golden Age dramas... an unmistakable winner' - Daily Telegraph

'A bold and eloquent play that confronts titanic conflicts between church and state, faith and creativity, and male and female power-structures' - Guardian
