Lent Week 2
Elektra's father has been murdered - and now she wants justice. Down in the fields outside the house, amidst the sound of old spirituals and work songs, she plots revenge upon the killer: her own mother. The final piece of the puzzle is the return of her brother Orestes. But when he finally arrives on a sweltering summer's day, can he be the hero she wants him to be? Ezra Pound & Rudd Fleming's visionary translation relocates the Greek tragedy in the Deep South of America, in a new take on this gripping tale of family feud and retribution.
