On the night before battle, Judith enters the enemy camp to kill the Assyrian general, Holofernes. Her land is at stake - but what of her heart and mind?
A timely revival of Barker’s radical reimagining of this apocryphal story, which lays bare the complex sacrifices of human beings at war.
A production previously seen as part of a Barker double bill at the Arcola in 2015. (Reviews from that show). Cusak reprises her lead.
