Tyranny and tragedy in Ancient Rome

Timberlake Wertenbaker’s keen eye for politics and ancient tragedies turns the story of Agrippina, Nero and their bloody quest for power into a thrilling new production at the Lyric Hammersmith.

Desperate to maintain influence after her husband’s death, Agrippina maneuvers her son Nero into position as Roman Emperor - pushing out his half-brother and rightful heir Britannicus. However, the once virtuous Nero soon turns to tyranny in both personal and political arenas, with tragic consequences.

Exploring the corridors of power in Ancient Rome, French playwright Jean Racine’s vision of Roman history first premiered in 1669, and has been translated and adapted by Timberlake Wertenbaker (Our Country’s Good) for English-speaking audiences. Director Atri Banerjee leads this intense new production, having won the 2019 The Stage Debut Award for Best Director (Hobson’s Choice).

Experience an epic tour-de-force with Britannicus tickets. This gripping adaptation will immerse you in a centuries-old power struggle that feels as relevant today as it did hundreds of years ago.
