Scena Mundi was created in 2011 by Cecilia Dorland. Our first production was John Lyly's 'Love's Metamorphosis' at the Pentameters Theatre in Hampstead, followed by T.S. Eliot's 'Murder in the Cathedral' at The Priory Church of Saint Bartholomew the Great in West Smithfield, London, in May 2014. Scena Mundi were subsequently offered a residency at Great St. Bart's, and have since staged 'Everyman', in November 2014, and our first Repertory Season, 'Sad Stories of the Death of Kings: Richard II & Edward II' in spring/summer 2015. Having received much critical acclaim, Scena Mundi were invited to bring the season to the Isle of Wight, in August 2015, to headline the Ventnor Exchange Festival. In autumn 2015, Scena Mundi presented their first production at the Jack Studio Theatre, Ben Jonson's dark comedy 'Volpone, or The Fox'. Transported into the rip-roaring era of postwar decadence, the 1920s romp received outstanding reviews across the board. Our most recent production was a dark, shimmering 'Twelfth Night' at the stunning French Protestant Church, Soho Square, in the heart of London's West End.
We are now preparing our Autumn-Winter 2016-17 season and more information will be available on our website soon.
