The Rape of Lucrece - Presented by Gate Theatre

Saturday, 1 June 2019, 8.00pm

In this exquisite interpretation of Shakespeare’s tragic poem, The Rape of  Lucrece, internationally acclaimed Irish actress and singer Camille O’Sullivan narrates the fates of  Tarquin and Lucrece.
Inhabiting the souls of both characters, Camille weaves a tale of violence and lust, innocence and power. The poem’s tragedy is fully revealed in this visceral production through the hypnotic musical performance of 12 songs with O’Sullivan’s long-time collaborator Feargal Murray.
The original production was staged to great acclaim and sold out houses at the Edinburgh Festival (2012), Sydney Festival (2013) and Dublin Theatre Festival (2013). In Spring 2018, Camille O’Sullivan returned to the Gate Theatre for the first time since her role as the Beggar Woman in Sweeney Todd (2007) to redevelop this piece as a Gate Theatre production.

Running Time 80 mins
Age Recommendation 16+ Accompanied by an Adult
