Woyzeck (Omnibus, 2013) director Robyn Winfield-Smith returns with this powerful one-act play radically reimagines the legend of Judith – the daring widow who infiltrates the enemy camp the night before battle to kill the blood-crazed head of the army, Holofernes…

Coronation Street actress Catherine Cusack stars in this powerful one act play reimagining the apocryphal legend of Judith. Her land is at stake – but what of her heart and mind? In this radical reimagining of a legend, internationally renowned playwright Howard Barker lays bare the complex sacrifices of human beings at war. Following a 4-week run at the Arcola in 2015, Judith returns for a national tour.

A co-production between REND and Lighthouse Poole.
