Alcestis archiveA Queen, Alcestis, gives up her life to save her king. The King, wracked by guilt, contemplates a future without her. But will Apollo's prediction that Alcestis will return from the dead come true? Poignant, tragic and intensely moving, with episodes of burlesque comedy, Alcestis is a potent drama based on a Greek play by Euripedes. Ted Hughes brings his talents as a poet and playwright to bear in this surprisingly contemporary version, filled with verbal brilliance and captivating story telling - his last masterpiece. World premiere tour.


Barrie Rutter, Andrew Cryer, Joanne Thirsk, David Hounslow, Frank Moorey, Adam Sunderland, Tom Silburn, Sarah Parks, Andy Wear, Andrew Vincent, David Beckford, Andrew Whitehead, Rachel Jane Allen
