    One of the greatest revenge tragedies of Western theatre, Aeschylus’s ‘Agamemnon’ offers a telling depiction of the danger of meeting violence with violence that is gruelling, visceral and strikingly modern.

    Set in the aftermath of the Trojan war, the play follows the bloody chain of murder and revenge within a royal household. Power, sacrifice, social oppression; it’s a ruthless portrayal of the extent to which humanity is willing to go for control.
