About this show

N is a phantasmagorical work for theatre centered on the figure of Napoleon in his final years of exile on the island of St. Helena. Guarded by 5,000 British soldiers, surrounded by sycophants, toadies and an unforgiving sea, and plagued by rats, the Little Emperor travels back and forth in time as he confronts his legacy and crafts his future legend. This passionate new work for theatre is poised at the intersection of madness and genius, war and peace, prison and freedom, imagination and dread, legacy and legend. It is a work for our time. Devised by Laura Harrington and directed by Kim Mancuso.
