Bruce: Death of a king
Betzalel & Co
Politics, power and war drive much of our history, but what about those who drive world-changing events? How would one of the history's greatest winners face the moment of his own death, one enemy that he cannot fight, cannot outsmart and cannot negotiate with?
This is a modern re-imagining of the last hour in the life of a warrior king and brutal political realist and how he views his own life and actions.
Based in a real historical context, this work has strong messages for today's political world. Political murder, the power of propaganda, the use of war as a political tool are all tools that are used in the life of this King.
All leaders face their own inevitable ending and the play asks how a man of almost absolute power faces his own mortality. What drives people to take positions of control and how do they face its ending?
