Thursday 22 – Saturday 24 October 2015
By Howard Barker
Directed by David Salter
A riposte to the conventional image of Thomas More, Brutopia takes as its starting point the alienation of the least favoured of his daughters and her secret composition of a counter-text to her father’s classic, Utopia. This is Howard Barker’s method par excellence – invented history, speculative morality, worlds within worlds.
Long considered the enfant terrible of contemporary British theatre and the subject of heated debate, Howard Barker’s plays are impossible to ignore.
A masterful and highly compelling work that should not be missed!
