ABOUT THE SHOW 

In an era defined by women confronting social and political structures of justice, the return to Sophocles’ Electra is a natural one. In it, a woman battles rivaling concepts of what is right, what is wrong, and for whom. Her internal voice is steeped in visceral hatred for her mother, Clytemnestra, who killed her beloved father, even though he himself killed Electra’s sister. Now, her judgements are put to the test: her brother has returned, radicalized and ready to kill.

With subtlety hidden in magnified violence, Sophocles explores the moral ambiguity of one woman’s vengeance, making the ultimate question a difficult one; should Electra’s behavior be condoned or condemned? Join us for this intimate and powerful performance which promises to unsettle and inspire.
