The Shakespeare Edit Lucrece



Lucrece is raped by Tarquin, the King's son. She chooses to tell her story and demand justice and revenge rather than remain silent. Her courage leads to the overthrow of the monarchy and the founding of the Roman republic. Following a critically acclaimed co-production with the National Centre for the Performing Arts Mumbai, The Shakespeare Edit brings its thrilling adaptation of Shakespeare's epic poem to the Edinburgh Festival Fringe. 'A hard-hitting tale of courage we all need to see' ( 'I sat stunned and somehow hopeful' (Mumbai Mirror). 'A triumph' (Mumbai Notebook).
