‘I’d rather walk in blood than walk a slave
For he thy Emperor!’
Iron Age Britain (50AD) has been conquered by Roman invaders.
When an ally of the Romans - King Prasutagus of the Iceni tribe - dies, his estranged wife Boudica returns to claim her rightful throne. When she is denied her inheritance and instead brutally punished by the Romans, she leads a tribal uprising in an attempt to exact bloody revenge.
Boudica is a brand new ancient history play that tells the story of one of Britain's most infamous women: a queen, a warrior and a rebel. The role of Boudica will be played by Gina McKee. In 2016, McKee performed in Faith Healer at the Donmar Warehouse, and is well-known for her role as Bella in the 1999 film Notting Hill.
This production portrays the violent world of Boudica and the coarseness of battle.
Please note: Boudica contains strong language, blood, sexual violence and graphic fight scenes. Due to this, we suggest this production may not be suitable for children under the age of 14.
