The Rape of Lucrece
, Shakespeare’s politically-charged, sexually provocative and violent thriller, is brought to life in the hands of internationally-acclaimed performer Camille O’Sullivan.
Camille inhabits the souls of both Tarquin and Lucrece. While narrating their fates, she delivers a range of human experience in a dark tale that is as beautiful as it is monstrous.
Fusing storytelling and song, this rarely performed tragedy was a recent hit at the Edinburgh International Festival, winning a prestigious Bank of Scotland Herald Angel Award.
This Royal Shakespeare Company production features original music, co-written by Feargal Murray and Camille, and is directed by Elizabeth Freestone. Feargal accompanies Camille on piano.
Warning: Political, sexual and provocative. Not recommended for children under 15.
