Arcola Theatre


A raucous treat for the senses – Barker's brutal, poetic, and gruesome Restoration tale of kings’ whores, bankers’ gold, and a widow’s quest to salvage a life from the debris and chaos of England at War. Oh. And her husband's body parts…

"What kind of monarchy is this?" demands the king of his mistress, with his breeches round his ankles. As Barker's widow is forced to react in a world of shifting loyalty, trust, power, and money, she discovers that the court of Charles II is as dirty and dangerous as any battlefield.

Howard Barker is internationally celebrated for his thrilling and provocative writing. Drawing parallels between the political deceptions of the 17th Century and those of today, Victory is a powerful and cutting-edge play.
