Judith: A Parting From The Body

Judith: A Parting From The Body

Arcola Theatre · 05 SEP - 09 SEP

Coronation Street’s Catherine Cusack takes on the title role in a timely revival of Barker’s “short, sharp shocker of a play” (WhatsOnStage).

Overview

This firecracker adaptation reimagines the apocryphal legend of Judith – the daring widow who, on the night before battle, infiltrates the enemy camp with her Servant to seduce and kill the blood-crazed head of the invading army, Holofernes. Her land is at stake – but what of her heart and mind? In his radical reimagining of a legend, Barker lays bare the complex sacrifices of human beings at war.
