The Love of the Nightingale by Timberlake Wertenbaker
Timberlake Wertenbaker has taken the ancient Greek myth of the Athenian princess Philomele and, with theatrical power and verbal elegance, shone a modern light on a story of violence against women and the silencing of female victims. The Love of the Nightingale was written for and first performed by the Royal Shakespeare Company in 1988.
