About This Show

A heroic ruler returns to his kingdom to claim his rightful throne. England’s 1630 peace deal with Spain made a drama about Iberian events too sensitive; royal censors demanded that the play was reframed set in the distant world of ancient Rome.

(first performed 1631, published 1849)

Sam Wanamaker Playhouse. Part of the Read Not Dead season
