The Emperor

The Emperor

Produced by Young Vic, HOME, and Les Théâtres de la Ville de Luxembourg

SYNOPSIS: The Emperor sees the masterfully transformative Kathryn Hunter fully animate a tale of dishonesty, greed and attrition. Playing a number of servants to a despotic ruler teetering on the brink, the incredible stories from the eyes of the lowly and loyal are brought to life to illuminate life within the confines of a kingdom defined by titles and tradition. Based on the astonishing book by legendary journalist Ryszard Kapuściński, this is a powerful set of accounts which present an extraordinary fable of corruption, avarice and collapse of absolute power.
