About

Legendary actress Vanessa Redgrave makes her eagerly anticipated Washington debut in a new Royal Shakespeare Company production of Hecuba, Euripides' gripping tragedy about the captive Queen of Troy. One of the RSC's most illustrious alumni, the Emmy, Olivier, and Academy Award(r) winner recently added a 2003 Tony Award(r) to her list of accolades for her spellbinding performance in Broadway's A Long Day's Journey into Night. After 43 years, Vanessa Redgrave returns to the company that made her a Shakespearean star to portray the long-suffering yet headstrong matriarch Hecuba, in a new version by Tony Harrison. The production promises a tour-de-force performance from one of theater and film's greatest luminaries.

PLEASE NOTE: There will be no intermission.
