Following a 5-Star winning run at the Edinburgh Festival Fringe and sell-out performances in London, Olivier award nominee and RSC actor Gerard Logan now brings his astonishing solo performance of Shakespeare's brilliant, brutal narrative poem, giving an account of the terrible crime of rape and its dreadful consequences.
As ever, though, Shakespeare goes beyond the obvious, following the ramifications of the crime wherever they take him, shining a light on a band of human-behaviour encompassing the bestial and the beautiful.
