Vanessa Redgrave returns to the RSC after 40 years



Preview by Lizzie Guilfoyle

AFTER an absence of 40 years, Vanessa Redgrave (pictured in the film, Camelot) makes a welcome return to the RSC, playing the eponymous Hecuba, in a play which celebrates the courage of a woman at the very brink of despair.

Hecuba opens at the Albery on April 7, 2005 (previews from March 26) for a limited period only - until May 7, 2005.

Adapted by Tony Harrison from the original by Euripides, it's the story of Hecuba, former Queen of Troy.

A prisoner of war, she is being transported to Athens by her Greek captors. Having already lost almost everything in the conflict - her home, her husband and most of her children - she faces further heartbreak when her son is murdered and her daughter's life comes under threat.

Tickets are priced £5 - £39 and are available from the Box Office on 0870 060 6621.
