Gertrude the Cry

A brutal, poetic exploration of lust and sexuality. Complicit in her husband’s murder from the off, Gertrude begins a tempestuous and raw physical relationship with Claudius, much to the disgust of her prudish son Hamlet. Unable to recreate her 'cry', Gertrude tries to find what drives her lust – and in doing so, gains power over all of the men around her.
