"Tyranny always promises good things."

Power and succession are in the very bones of Rome. Agrippina, desperate to cling onto power, has ensured her son, Nero, is the Roman Emperor, in place of his half-brother and the rightful heir. But the corridors of power and Nero’s own obsession turn a once virtuous ruler into an oppressive tyrant. 

Britannicus plays the Lyric Hammersmith from 26 May – 25 June 2022.
