The Rape of Lucrece

The Rape of Lucrece

"What win I if I gain the thing I seek?"

By WILLIAM SHAKESPEARE
Directed by GARETH ARMSTRONG

The Roman Prince Tarquin is tormented by a psychopathic jealousy of his best friend Collatinus’ celebrated heroism. One night, he travels in secret and rapes Collatinus’ wife, Lucrece. The Rape of Lucrece is Shakespeare’s chilling and beautiful narrative poem exploring the ramifications of the crime of rape. On a bare stage, Gerard Logan embodies both rapist and victim as they spring to searing life.

Gerard Logan won The Stage’s Best Solo Performer Award at the Edinburgh Festival for The Rape of Lucrece. His extensive stage career includes roles at the National Theatre and RSC, where he was nominated for an Olivier Award.
