Victory says
Written by: Howard Barker
Directed by: Glenn Hayden
Performed by: 2nd Year Acting students

Howard Barker pulls no punches in Victory, a historical play set in the wreckage of post-Cromwellian England. It's 1661 and Charles II has been restored to the throne. On the new king's vengeful orders, the body of John Bradshaw, the judge who signed Charles I's death warrant, is to be exhumed and publicly displayed. Bradshaw's widow sets off on a journey searching for her husband's abused remains. Meanwhile at court, King Charles II is forced to appease the influential money-men who are responsible for his restoration. Barker's drama is epic political theatre that, in the age of Kosovo, Bosnia and Iraq, remains as pertinent today as it was when it was written.

Note - Contains strong adult themes, coarse language and nudity. Not suitable for children under 16 years of age.
