Greek

T01217478402
First performed in 1988. Greek catapults us into the seedy, boozy East End world of Eddy and his family. Stuck in a rut, Eddy longs for more. When his Dad tells him that a fortune teller once predicted that he would kill his father and marry his mother, Eddy decides he’s had enough and leaves home to find love in the unlikely form of the wife of a man he kicks to death. Little does he know that ten years later he will discover his true identity, with tragic consequences... Swinging from demotic energy to soulful intensity, Turnage’s jazz-influenced score vividly conveys the overt theatricality of the larger than life characters, throwing this human tragedy into sharp relief. Greek is a contemporary classic - a work that will move audiences to tears and back again, sharing a tale of searing emotion and brazen vitality.
Music Mark-Anthony Turnage
