Camille set to take on the Bard's Lucrece

Camille O'Sullivan is one of our most talented performers so when we heard that she was taking on Shake-speare's, The Rape of Lucrece, for the Dublin Theatre Festival we knew further investigation was needed. The architect-turned-chanteuse will deliver the Bard's politically-charged poem that was first published in 1594 through song and storytelling, and Feargal Murray will play the original score live on piano. The tragic tale of rape, suicide, royalty and revolt is produced by the Royal Shakespeare Company and has been already won rave reviews in both the Edinburgh and Sydney festivals. This production takes place from October 10-12 in the O'Reilly Theatre in Belvedere College and tickets start at €25. See www.dublintheatre festival.com
