About

1987 Productions presents its second offering for the year, The Rape of Lucrece. Shakespeare's tragic poem, a terrible tale of lust, rape and politics, is both beautiful and violent. From political chronicle to sexual thriller, the poem's exquisite tragedy is fully revealed in an hypnotic performance of song and storytelling. Dual female actresses Tylah Hearn and Emma Dee Forster inhabit the souls of both Tarquin and Lucrece, narrating the fate of each character and of Rome. Limited season.
