Hecuba – Event Cinema

Hecuba – Event Cinema

We are delighted to announce that Hecuba by Marina Carr is coming to a screen near you in an exciting cinema event.

Screened across the country, Hecuba is a dynamic filmed version of Rough Magic’s critically acclaimed theatre production (a sell-out hit from the 2019 Dublin Theatre Festival); a passionate reimagining of the aftermath of the Trojan War by internationally renowned playwright Marina Carr. Directed by Lynne Parker, with DOP Colm Hogan and edited by Tony Cranstoun.

Surrounded by the devastation of her city, her husband slain, Hecuba waits in the throne room for the conqueror Agamemnon. She and her daughters now face a future beyond their control, in a history written by the victors. An extraordinary ensemble cast (led by Aislín McGuckin, Brian Doherty and Owen Roe) offer a series of intense, dangerous, personal encounters and impossible choices in this visceral depiction of the effect of war and its cost to the individual.

Showing in cinemas nationwide on 15th September 2022 check your local listings to buy tickets.
