Description

An explosive retelling of the most savage and powerful of ancient myths the story of avenging siblings, Electra and Orestes premiered by Shared Experience Theatre Company. As children, Orestes and his sister, Electra, were sent far away, banished by their own mother. Years later, the city must vote to determine their future, as they stand trial for her murder. Some say the killing should be met with banishment and that the cycle of revenge must be stopped. Others want blood... Exploring the tragedy of human relationships set against the backdrop of war, Orestes is based on Euripides' Electra.
