“Rome calls us savages – wild, mongrel beasts. Well – let us show them just how wild we are!”

After her husband’s death, legendary Iceni Queen Boudica’s homeland was stolen; her body was broken; and unspeakable things were done to her daughters by the invading Romans.

Now she’s back – and she’s brought an army. 

Boudica is a spectacle of monumental proportions, telling an ancient story of revenge and power in a relevant, invigorating and hair-raising fashion.

Why we love this play

“This play is epic but also relatable – it speaks to contemporary issues about migration, land ownership and belonging within the context of a historical revenge saga. This is one of the biggest productions we’ve ever done and I’m excited to see what our young creatives make of this task.”
