The Rape of Lucrece
22 February 2012
By William Shakespeare
Directed by the award winning Gareth Armstrong
“Lucrece” quoth he “this night I must enjoy thee. If thou deny then force must work my way: For in thy bed I purpose to destroy thee…”
WINNER OF THE STAGE NEWSPAPER’S ‘BEST SOLO PERFORMER OF THE 2011 EDINBURGH FESTIVAL’
Following a 5-Star winning run at the Edinburgh Festival (winning Best Solo Performer Award 2011) and sell-out performances, Olivier award nominee and RSC actor Gerard Logan now brings his astonishing, internationally-acclaimed performance of Shakespeare’s brilliant, brutal narrative poem, giving an account of the terrible crime of rape and its dreadful consequences, to the Tabard Theatre for one night only.
A single actor, a bare stage – rapist and victim springing to searing life.
‘…unmissable for all Shakespeare fans…’
