The Rape of Lucrece
By William Shakespeare
A single actor, a bare stage – rapist and victim springing to searing life.
With this brilliant and brutal narrative poem Shakespeare goes beyond the obvious, following the ramifications of the crime wherever they take him, shining a light on a band of behaviour encompassing the bestial and the beautiful.
Olivier Award-nominee Gerard Logan returns to the Burton Taylor Studio following his sell-out visit in 2011. The Rape of Lucrece is brought powerfully to life by this RSC actor, who received five star reviews at the Edinburgh Festival and a sell-out London run.
