WHAT IS IT ABOUT?
Explore the eternal battle between the artist and the State in Howard Barker's Scenes From an Execution, passionate story of the Venetian painter Galactia, and her collision with the Doge of Venice.
Together in one evening:
The story of Judith is one of the great tales of female heroism and sexuality that has inspired artists in nearly every generation. In Howard Barker's telling, the fatal encounter between Judith and Holofernes becomes a complex duel of seduction and deception and a compelling study of intense desire and the sometimes terrifying nature of love.
Vinegar Tom is a haunting play with seriously subversive intent – misogny, torture + songs. In a village in 17th century England, three women are threatened with death for the practice of witchcraft. Caryl Churchill's Vinegar Tom is a cabaret about hanging witches, with no witches.
