Boudica

By Tristan Bernays

The Royal Central School of Speech and Drama

September - November 2019

Her land invaded. Her throne usurped. Her family abused. Boudica will fight. AD 60. Britain is the latest conquest of the sprawling Roman Empire. Queen Boudica intends to rise up against the foreign power, but the native tribes are at each other's throats. Can a fragile coalition of warlords beat back the power of Rome? And what will be lost if they can't?

Premiered at the Globe in 2017, Tristan Bernays reimagines the Shakespeare history play as a female-driven epic narrative of scope and spectacle, asking who lives on this cold island on the fringes of Europe, and who we could be. Original music by Penny Ashmore, Harry Ryan and Issie Riley. First performed at the Courtyard Theatre at the Royal Central School of Speech and Drama, London for a week, the production then transferred to the Studio space the Curve Theatre, Leicester. Each run featured a relaxed matinee performance.
