Rape of Lucrece – Fringe Festival 2011!

Rape of Lucrece - Minnesota Fringe Festival 2011

An intimate, intense, and terrifying adaptation of William Shakespeare’e epic poem. In this dramatic, storytelling staging, the vibrant, staccato beats of the Bard’s eternal verse pound out a tale of erotic savagery and violation.

Lucrece is the sweet and virtuous wife of Colatine. But when Colatine sings her praises to his fellow officers, he lights a blazing lust in the heart of Prince Tarquin. Tarquin flees the army, returns to Rome, enters Lucrece’s home under false pretenses, and in the blackest hours of the night forces himself upon her.

Lucrece’s ordeal, however, is only beginning as Shakespeare vividly captures her bleak and hopeless struggle to cope with unimaginable trauma…
