Border Crossings and Ashtar Theatre (Palestine)
in association with the Royal Central School of Speech and Drama present:

This Flesh is Mine

by Brian Woolland

Achilles, the greatest of the Achaean warriors, refuses to fight; angered that King Agamemnon has stolen his captive slave-girl, Briseis.

“She shares my tent, she shares my bed.
Her flesh is mine.”

Produced in collaboration with Ashtar Theatre from Palestine, Brian Woolland’s taut and poetic new play for Border Crossings brings together Homer’s Troy and the Middle East of today: worlds shaken by cycles of violence and revenge, by ambition and self-interest masquerading as idealism; worlds struggling towards any possibility of reconciliation.
