Emperor and Galilean - National Theatre

Issue No. 2259

This epic play, with a cast of 50, tells the story of the Roman emperor Justinian and his attempt to restore “old” values to the empire in AD 351.

This is a new version by Ben Power of Henrik Ibsen’s little performed epic.

While it is a lesser-known piece, it was a favourite of the author.

This is a drama that questions the effect of what religion means—it could be interesting.
