Ursula archiveThe conflict between sexual and spiritual love. In myth, Ursula so wanted to keep her virginity that she travelled down the Rhine accompanied by 10,000 virgins to break off her betrothal. The play took its inception form the image The Massacre of the Virgin Martyrs in the sixteenth century altar piece by Cranach the Elder in Dresden. Cranach revolutionised the subject by shifting the attention of the viewer from the victims to the perpetrator, The Prince. First performed in 1998 by The Wrestling School at the Birmingham Repertory Theatre, Barker's play reconstructs the Ursula legend by moving the focus to a very different place: the tragic theatre.
Performers Victoria Wicks.
