Camille O Sullivan 'The Rape of Lucrece'

It’s not every day you see an actress take on the role of rape victim, rapist and rape victim’s father but Camille O Sullivan is no ordinary actress. One only needs to look at her impressive and diverse career as both an actress and a singer to see that she likes to challenge herself creatively and likes to push boundaries. She is bringing an adaptation of Shakespeare’s epic narrative poem the rape of Lucrece to Drogheda’s Droichead Arts Centre as part of this year’s Drogheda Arts festival, difficult subject matter and no better woman than Camille O Sullivan to bring it to the stage. Here she talks Shakespeare, taking on the intense role and dueting with her partner actor Aidan Gillen.
