Emperor and Galilean is playing at the National Theatre from 1 July.

Originally written by Henrik Ibsen, Ben Power presents a new version of the play, in which Emperor and Galilean sweeps across Greece and the Middle East from AD 351, covering 12 formative years in the history of civilisation. It dramatises the actions of one man who could have changed everything forever.

The Independent said of Emperor and Galilean: "Enormous flair and dialectical dynamism. A credit to the enterprise of the NT."

Ticket prices range from £12-£30. The play runs until 10 August. To find out more visit
