AD 61. Romans are in charge of Britain. When the widowed Boudica is flogged and her two daughters raped, she decides to respond. But who was she?
In Stephanie Jacob’s poetic text Boudica flits through history’s gaps and enters as sadistic avenger, guilty mother, beady cultural commentator, as strategist, magician, ghost who longs to live…
Performed by Jacob in dialogue with a cellist, this Boudica tells a story resonant in our own political crisis: hurt and fear when cultures clash, the struggle to claim power as a woman, the unending puzzle of what it is to be British…
and Boudica herself?
