The hotly anticipated debut from the Auckland Shakespeare Company is here. Lucrece is a reimagining of Shakespeare's darkest poem, The Rape of Lucrece. Working from the original text, four actors take you on the heart stopping journey of Lucrece, the chaste wife of a noble lord, who is sexually violated in her own home by Tarquin, a Roman prince. As a result she commits suicide and her body is paraded through the streets of Rome.
