Invictus: A Play
At the court of the Roman emperor Constantine, Christians and pagans are struggling for power. But within the imperial family itself an even more dangerous conflict arises, as a forbidden passion leads to disaster.
British playwright Francis Jarman (A Star Fell, Girls Will Be Girls, Lip Service) offers an original and dramatic solution to one of the most mysterious crimes in Western history.
