WHAT WE DO & WHY WE DO IT
After the Eagles
This performance piece took as it's starting point the 1600th anniversary of the end of the Roman Empire in Britain by looking at three intertwining stories; a Roman merchants widow, keen to keep her husband's business going in Britain, her slave, a former Romano-British noblewoman and a returning soldier.
Each character has a secret that is revealed during the play which explores their reasons for wanting the end of the Roman Empire or it’s continuation.
It has been performed at a number of historic sites and at the English Heritage Festival of History. Last year, for the second year running, After the Eagles was performed at both Hadrian’s Wall Live! as well as at Dover Castle’s Roman Festival.
