English Play (60 mins)
An NCPA Production in collaboration with The Shakespeare Edit
Lucrece is a dramatic adaptation of Shakespeare’s 1594 narrative poem now known as ‘The Rape of Lucrece’. It is a narrative poem about the tragic rape and death of the title character and the revenge that follows. Extraordinary in its beauty and scope, it is also a very political play at the centre of current issues around assault and patriarchy.
“The Rape of Lucrece isn’t the most widely-read of Shakespeare’s works. But the London-based Shakespeare teacher and director Paul Goodwin saw its relevance to contemporary events. He edited its 1855 lines to less than half the length to allow a new voice, the raped woman’s voice, to be heard loud and clear.” – Shanta Gokhale for Mumbai Mirror
