'One of the most idiosyncratic intelligences at work in contemporary literature.' The Guardian on Anne Carson
Entrapped by her grief and a burning sense of injustice, Elektra battles to find purpose in life after the murder of her father.
Will revenge bring her relief and freedom? Or will it continue to trap her family in an endless cycle of violence?
Director Carrie Cracknell blends movement, music and text in a haunting exploration of Sophocles' masterpiece.
'Carrie Cracknell's production is tense, swift and cruelly clear: great riches in a small space.' The Sunday Times on Hedda
