Theatre: Britannicus

Agrippina, widow of the emperor Claudius, has had her son Nero named Emperor of Rome, in place of Claudius’ son Britannicus. To maintain her hold over Nero, Agrippina has favored the marriage of Britannicus to Junia, a descendant of the Emperor Augustus. Fearing that such a marriage will strengthen his rival’s claim to the throne, Nero abducts Junia. He himself then falls in love with her, and when she rejects him, he has Britannicus arrested. Agrippina appeals to Nero on behalf of Britannicus, and the court is riven with factions, intrigues, and murder that lead inexorably to a gripping and terrifying conclusion.
