$10.00 - $12.50*
A beautiful widowed heroine offers her body as sacrifice to an enemy general in order to save her country in this dramatic re-telling of the apocryphal Book of Judith. Written by prolific playwright, poet and librettist Howard Barker (artistic director of acclaimed British theatre company Wrestling School), the play explores challenging topics including a woman's body as commodity, sacrifice as a path to ecstasy and seduction in the time of destruction. It's a daring and highly-charged work from a renowned master of the "Theatre of Catastrophe."
