Experience the Shakespeare you’ve never experienced. Imago Theatre hosts +Street Scenes’ unique theatrical production of William Shakespeare’s long poem “The Rape of Lucrece,” with music by Matt Insley in collaboration with Jessica Tidd.
“The Rape of Lucrece” is an intense, intimate production featuring a combination of spoken word and song, a two-thousand-year-old timely story and emotional and compelling evening of theater, a remarkably potent and necessary piece in light of its current context. The daily onslaught of headlines about the sexual assault of women by more powerful men – from movie moguls and actors to journalists and politicians – provides an effective backdrop for a piece that explores Shakespeare’s mythic reworking of an ancient Roman tale.” Prahlad Srihari December 06, 2017.
Special benefit performance on February 1 when all proceeds will go to Sexual Abuse Survivors Movement/Process Group of Portland.
