Australian born playwright Doug Moody has spent more than twenty years researching and writing Boadicea, his latest awe inspiring stage play. This meticulously researched piece of work will keep audiences riveted as we experience one of the most brutal periods of British history. This is a no holds barred account of the truth behind the legend and one which will shock and repulse even the most hardened of audiences. We find the population of Britain being ruled over by Roman invaders, tyrants who have made a business out of war. These despots have a lust for power and wealth and persecute those they dominate without an ounce of compassion. These monsters rape children of both genders and butcher all forms of life without remorse. However the Romans have become complacent and when the legendary Boadicea is flogged by these vermin and forced to watch her two young daughters being deflowered all hell will break loose. Boadicea will unite the fractured clans of Britain; the peasants will revolt and exact their bloodthirsty revenge on their suppressors. The stench of death will engulf the whole country. Boadicea was seen as a brave warrior woman by some and as a sadistic monster by others. Doug Moody expertly explores all sides of this enthralling story which has become a part of legend. Doug also shows that little has changed over the centuries and that much can still be learnt from what occurred during this tumultuous period in time.
