Scenes from a Execution - State Theatre Company of South Australia - 2002

by Howard Barker

Scenes from an Execution is a play by the English playwright Howard Barker. The plot revolves around a female artist's struggles against the Venetian city-state in the aftermath of the 16th century Battle of Lepanto. Although the city commissions the painting to celebrate the victory over the Turks, the artist's vision differs dramatically from that of the Doge and the Catholic Church. The play has been described as "Barker's most famous and accessible play".[1]

Originally a radio play for the BBC in 1984 with Glenda Jackson in the role of the artist Galactia, the stage version was first performed in 1990 at the Almeida Theatre in London with Glenda Jackson reprising her role. The play was later revived in 2012 by the National Theatre on its Lyttelton stage with Fiona Shaw and Tim McInnerny starring in this production. Barker himself has turned against the play. "It's a very easy play to like", he said in 1999, and believed in 2012 that some of his other plays are superior works.
