Her land invaded. Her throne usurped. Her family abused. Boudica will fight.
AD 60. Britain is the latest conquest of the sprawling Roman Empire. Queen Boudica intends to rise up against the foreign power, but the native tribes are at each other’s throats. Can a fragile coalition of warlords beat back the power of Rome? And what will be lost if they can’t?
Premiered at the Globe in 2017, Tristan Bernays reimagines the Shakespeare history play as a female-driven epic narrative of scope and spectacle, asking who lives on this cold island on the fringes of Europe, and who we could be.
