Easter Week 2
King Agamemnon is long dead. His wife and her new boyfriend were his murderers. But his children are starting to come of age- children who grew up surrounded by death and conflict. Electra who grieves, bloodthirsty Orestes, and Chrysothemis, who has moved on too quickly.
With a score of original electronic music, and a chorus of slam poets, this brand new adaptation of Sophocles' tragedy injects an urgent profundity into Electra's fraught psyche.
This is the tale of a young girl, floored by the crosswinds of her feuding family, grappling with loneliness, abandon, and a debilitating desire for revenge.
"Blood might be thicker than water, but it's got nothing on dust."
