The Oresteia
By Aeschylus

7:45pm, Tue 30th January 2018 - Sat 3rd February 2018, at ADC Theatre
Lent Week 2

The Atreus family is in turmoil.

10 years have passed since Clytemnestra’s husband, Agamemnon, sacrificed their eldest daughter, Iphigenia, in order to stop military defeat. Clytemnestra is left to exact revenge.

Blood for blood, wound for wound, act for act: Aeschylus’ earth shattering trilogy tells the story of a family at war with each other. Husband against wife, wife against son, son against mother.

Their battlefield is an icy wound upon which terse family bonds are exposed and tightened, an empty stage on which the world’s oldest tragedy ricochets back into existence.

The Oresteia is reborn.

The cycle of blood continues…
