Coronation Street's Catherine Cusack (All That Fall, Broadway, Arts Theatre, Jermyn Street; Bingo, CFT & Young Vic) takes on the title role in a timely revival of Barker's play.

This firecracker adaptation reimagines the apocryphal legend of Judith - the daring widow who, on the night before battle, infiltrates the enemy camp with her Servant to seduce and kill the blood-crazed head of the invading army, Holofernes. Her land is at stake - but what of her heart and mind? In his radical reimagining of a legend, Barker lays bare the complex sacrifices of human beings at war
