Arcola Theatre
24 Ashwin Street, E8 3DL London, United Kingdom
Following the success of our ★★★★ «exhilarating & provoking» (The Stage) HOWARD BARKER DOUBLE BILL at Arcola Theatre in 2015, this «tour-de-force» (The Arts Desk) production of #JudithThePlay returns to Arcola for 1 week only, before going on #uktour.

Acclaimed actress Catherine Cusack (Coronation Street, ITV; DOCTOR WHO, BBC1; ALL THAT FALL, Broadway, Arts Theatre, Jermyn Street; BINGO, CFT & Young Vic) stars in Howard Barker's bold reimagining of the apocryphal story of Judith, the widow who dared to take on a tyrant.

A daring widow infiltrates the enemy camp the night before battle to seduce and kill the blood-crazed head of the army, Holofernes. Her land is at stake – but what of her heart and mind? In this radical reimagining of a legend, internationally-renowned playwright Howard Barker lays bare the complex sacrifices of human beings at war.
