An ancient British queen leads a rebellion against the Roman Empire
Roman-occupied Britain, 61 A.D.
Boudicca, the queen of her tribe, has been schooling her daughters in the ways of politics and war, so that they may rule the tribe successfully in the shadow of the Roman Empire. But when the Roman army suddenly occupies her land, she is flogged and her daughters both raped, and her people are turned out of their homes and flee for the countryside. Filled with rage and indignation, Boudicca raises an army and leads a rebellion to overthrow the Roman occupation and free the people of Britain.
The play will be produced in Austin, TX, with a cast of regional actors and actresses, and features battles, dance, and live music.
All funds will first go towards the purchase of, or reimbursement for purchasing, set materials, props, and costumes. All remaining funds will be used to pay for the venue rental, and then to reimburse the cast and crew for their hard work and long hours spent making this production a reality.
