Academy Award nominee® Ruth Negga makes her “mesmerizing” New York theatrical debut with a passionate, critically acclaimed portrayal, featuring an ensemble of leading Irish actors. Under Yaël Farber’s direction, focus shifts from anguish and identity to the power of resistance.

CRITIC'S PICK! Remarkable...beautiful...Negga has created a portrait of the theatre’s most endlessly analyzed prince that is drawn in lines of lightning.

Vigorously alive...Farber’s imaginative stagecraft is riveting...

Negga owns the stage...and she never lets us forget it.
A forceful, mesmerizingly atmospheric staging.
