WHAT IS IT ABOUT?

The Willow Cabin Theatre presents a timeless clash between virtue and violence, with its production of Thornton Wilder's Lucrece. The rape of Lucrece has inspired three of the world's intriguing poets, Shakespeare, André Obey and Thornton Wilder. Lucrece, the personification of Roman perfection, becomes the object of Sextus Tarquin's lust and is caught in an ever-escalating tragedy. Prompted by Shakespeare's romantic poem, André Obey wrote the dramatic Le Viol De Lucrèce, which in turn was translated by legendary playwright Wilder.
