Lucrezia Borgia, alternatively ruthless political schemer and victim of historical circumstance, awaits entry to the kingdom of heaven following her demise. Her ‘apologia’ presents juxtaposing accounts of her earthly existence: innocent victim of corruption, exploited to serve political interests, to willing accomplice with rumours of indulgence, incest, orgies and murder. But is there more to tell? Lucrezia has the opportunity to explain, but can she convince God? Is she a saint or a sinner?
London’s Theatre Lab Company are known for being dynamic, daring and visually stunning. Their Oxford premiere is a humourous and eloquent monologue based on the life of Lucrezia Borgia.
The show will be performed in Greek with English surtitles
