Witness the horror and intrigue of Sophocles’ tragic masterpiece Electra in this haunting new version by award-winning playwright Nick Payne.
When a young Electra’s father is murdered by her mother, her world changes irrevocably. 10 years on, bound by grief and unwilling to forgive, Electra surrenders to an all consuming desire for revenge that propels her towards a bloody and terrifying conclusion.
Director Carrie Cracknell blends movement, live music and text in this bruising adaptation for the Gate.
This is a Gate Theatre production in association with Young Vic.
