Berenice by Jean Racine, in a new version by Alan Hollinghurst
27 September - 24 November 2012
Berenice’s long and patient wait is over. Her lover, Titus, is now Emperor of Rome and with his succession, she can become his queen. But the Roman people make their disapproval known and Titus must choose between love and responsibility. Antiochus, Titus’ best friend, is sent to comfort her, but reveals his own unrequited love for Berenice.
In Berenice, Racine created a perfect tragedy of unfulfilled passion. In his new version, Man Booker Prize winner Alan Hollinghurst anatomises the agony of love.

The synopsis above sounds fascinating and the production stars Anne-Marie Duff. If you book now you can get good seats for £10 or £15. The Donmar is small and intimate; there is not a bad seat in the house. This is going to be HUGE! I have got my ticket in and my advice would be, if you want to see this production, do so now and you will get a good choice of tickets at £10.
