This is the old Britannia; King Prasutagus died and bequeathed his land to the Romans. In this epic story set under the brutal occupation of Rome, Queen Boudica, widow, mother and warrior, returns home after living in exile with her daughters to reclaim her rightful kingdom. When Boudica boldly confronts the Roman governor, she and her daughters survive an inhuman punishment, then she leads an uprising that devastates the colonizers. This piece examines social constructions of gender, identity and power. Boudica commemorates Women’s History Month while providing an evening of live music, sound effects and post-play discussion.
