Don Jon
by laura turner

​Spectrum Nightclub, Hull, 1-4 October 2014

"Director Alex Mitchell has created a tight and effective ensemble and directs the action with pace and charity. Whilst the movement sequences between Jon and El (Alice Beaumont) provide exciting and skillful imagery"
British Theatre Guide


Don Jon only wants one thing, he wants you to want him. He needs you to need him. Don Jon is based on the classical legend of Don Juan/Don Giovanni; however, Silent Uproar’s modern day appropriation, devised and created with writer Laura Turner, modernizing classical tale and throws in the roller-coaster of the blaring lights and blood pumping sound of today’s club culture. This is a tale more than greed and lust; we want to show the problems of today, to speak about the issues of gender and sexuality within today's club culture.

"As the lethal Don Jon, James Stanyer gives a sexy, credible and charismatic performance. He dominates the action- as indeed his character should"
