The Rape of Lucrece at Southport Atkinson June 6th, 2013 admin Latest News Latest Whats On Shares Comments The Rape of Lucrece at Southport Atkinson Gerard Logan stars in the first ever stage adaptation of William Shakespeare’s The Rape of Lucrece. The Rape of Lucrece is a brilliant, brutal narrative poem giving an account of the terrible crime of rape and its dreadful consequences for victim and perpetrator. 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. “Powerful and horrifying … beautifully and excellently delivered by a master of his craft … You will rarely have the chance to experience great poetry brought to life this well. If you love poetry, Shakespeare, or just a good story brilliantly told don’t miss this show.’ – Fringe Review “Great acing meets classic writing … an engrossing display of Shakespearean acting at its absolute finest.” – Three Weeks Gerard Logan has played leading roles with the National Theatre and the RSC (Olivier Award Nomination). The Rape of Lucrece has been a sell-out success during its London runs at the prestigious King’s Head Theatre, Sir Peter Hall’s Rose Theatre, Kingston and the Rose, Bankside.
