Jean Racine

Translated by Robert David MacDonald

An Almeida Theatre production that opened at the Albery Theatre with Diana Rigg and Toby Stephens, and then played for a season on Broadway. This political thriller, set in Rome at the beginning of Emperor Nero’s tyranny, lays bare the relationships at the heart of power as a world slips into moral chaos.
