Far away a battle rages and an entire city is turned to dust. Amelia can't sleep. She waits for news of her husband. He's a great general and this seems to be a decisive victory. But as the motives for the war start to look disturbingly personal, his wife becomes desperate to hold on to his love. Martin Crimp's new play takes Sophocles' ancient story of marriage and violence - Trachiniae - and propels it into a modern world of political hypocrisy and emotional terrorism.Performers Kerry Fox (Amelia), Joe Dixon (The General), Georgina Ackerman (Laela), Jessica Claire (Nicola), Lourdes Faberes (Cathy), Toby Fisher (James), Michael Gould (Jonathan), Nicola Redmond (Rachel), David Sibley (Richard), Aleksandar Mikic.
