A Parting of the Body
By Howard Barker
The night before a crucial battle Judith enters the tent of her enemy Holofernes, general of the Assyrian army, set on seducing him then cutting off his head. With her people due to be annihilated it is unthinkable that her purpose should waver for an instant. But who actually has the upper hand?
This astonishing three-hander by radical British playwright Barker grapples with the risks involved in negotiating love amidst the tension created by our desires. In the power struggles that follow can we ever truly be safeguarded from betrayal?
