Description An intriguing production which mixes the ultra-modern with the age-old, the contemporary with the classic. Bell draws on recent events in Europe (such as the crumbling of corrupt regimes a la Nicolae and Elena Ceausescu in Romania) to give new life to the double dealings in the court of King Claudius.
