Michaelmas Week 5
Returning to Argos, Orestes finds his mother married to his father's murderer, and his sister Electra working as their skivvy. Meanwhile, the gods send flies to plague the city, revenge for the regicide the people have permitted. Set in a nineteenth century mental asylum, Sartre’s absurdist reworking of this Greek tragedy is an intelligent and disturbing study of madness.
