The Rape of Lucrece archiveShakespeare's tragic morality love poem was written around 1593 during a period when the theatres of London were closed due to plague. This is the story, originally told by Ovid and Livy of a woman's struggle between honour and life. In the hypnotic hands of internationally-acclaimed performer Camille O'Sullivan, this rarely performed epic poem is thrillingly brought to life through storytelling and song by the Royal Shakespeare Company. With original music played live by Feargal Murray on piano, O'Sullivan inhabits the souls of both Tarquin and Lucrece.
