Gerard Logan reads “The Rape of Lucrece”

Exclusively for Tetbury Goods Shed

You can watch Gerard Logan’s reading from 7.30pm on Sunday 26 April. Donations would be hugely appreciated at this difficult time for both artists and venues. Any money you give will be shared between Gerard Logan and the Goods Shed Arts Centre.

FOR THE FIRST of our exclusive “Shutdown Showcase” one-off performances, we’re delighted that award-winning solo performer Gerard Logan has recorded acclaimed rendition of Shakespeare’s poem of dishonour and retribution in ancient Rome, The Rape of Lucrece.

One of the Bard’s earlier works, the poem tells the story of Lucretia – Lucrece to Shakespeare – whose rape and suicide led ultimately to the overthrow of the line of the kings of Rome and the founding of the Roman Republic.

Gerard Logan is widely acknowledged as an outstanding exponent of the solo performance, winning awards for his shows: The Rape of Lucrece and Wilde Without the Boy: Gareth Armstrong’s dramatisation of Oscar Wilde’s De Profundis.

Having performed his show Night Terrors here in January, Gerard will return to the Shed on 7 November in Wildean mode to give us Wilde without the Boy and The Ballad of Reading Gaol.
