William Shakespeare

Royal Shakespeare Company

Performed by Camille O'Sullivan

Shakespeare's The Rape of Lucrece is a politically-charged, sexually provocative and violent thriller.  In the hypnotic hands of internationally-acclaimed performer Camille O'Sullivan, this rarely performed tragedy is thrillingly brought to life through storytelling and song.  With original music played live by Feargal Murray on piano, O'Sullivan inhabits the souls of both Tarquin and Lucrece.  While narrating their fates, she delivers an astonishing range of human experience contained in this dark tale that is as beautiful as it is monstrous.

A recent hit at the Edinburgh International Festival, Elizabeth Freestone directs this Royal Shakespeare Company production, a seamless and powerful blend of music and verse.
