The Scapegoat at ‘Late at Tate’

Scenes from ‘The Scapegoat’ were performed in the Clore Auditorium at the Tate Britain as part of ‘Late at Tate’ event in December 2012

Scapegoat is a new play, originally a commission at Manchester Art Gallery, designed around the life and art of William Holman Hunt, set in the Holy Land in the 19th century, Israel of today, and Britain then and now. It touches upon themes of art and love, early Christian Zionism, contemporary questions of identity and conflict. Iconic Hunt’s paintings provide the setting for the scenes.  Written by Deborah Freeman and directed by Ariella Eshed

Cast includes: Kevin Hand, Drew Mc’Kenzie and Neusha Milanian
