The first English-language performances of a recent play by Howard Barker - Britain's greatest living playwright - The Times.

On 21st October 2009 Howard Barker’s ‘The Wrestling School’ are marking their 21st birthday with a truly international celebration. On this day more than 200 performers across four continents and eighteen countries are joining together to perform the work of Howard Barker in seven languages - including the RSC in the UK and the International Avatar Repertory Theatre.

Wales-based Bold Productions and Lurking Truth Theatre Company are delighted to join forces as the representatives of Wales in this truly international event.

A tense and compelling dramatic enquiry into the terms of life and death, A Wounded Knife brings together strong characters and shockingly unsentimental humour in a vivid story of sexual fixation and remorselessness. In this highly intriguing and engaging example of Barker’s distinctive drama, an unrepentant murderer is given a new lease of life by an unpredictable prince, who is driven to test the limits of others and himself, including a seductive widow, a revenge-driven tailor and a lethal surgeon. A Wounded Knife explores the dangers of love and questions of justice, in scenes rich with the tangles of eroticism and speculation, which prove both comic and terrifying.
