In this exquisite interpretation of Shakespeares tragic poem, The Rape of  Lucrece, internationally acclaimed Irish actress and singer Camille OSullivan 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 poems tragedy is fully revealed in this visceral production through the hypnotic musical performance of 12 songs with OSullivans 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 OSullivan 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.
