  3. Quantum Theatre’s Scenes from an Execution by Howard Barker


Sly Howard Barker offers 16th century Venice as the setting to provoke 21st century audiences, Rebel female painter Galactia is commissioned by the Doge to paint a vast canvas celebrating a triumphant battle. Yes, there are tensions between personal ambition and moral responsibility seen through the lens of sexual politics. But this play defies expectation (you’ll laugh quite a bit) and how you feel at the end is anyone’s guess. Note: Oxford Dictionary's first definition of the word ‘execution’… to ‘carry out, render.’
