CORONAVIRUS: currently, all theatres and related venues are closed. Shows are either being cancelled, postponed or rescheduled and we are trying to keep up with all the changes. There are currently few changes after May 2020 and many shows that were due for April have been pushed back towards the end of Autumn. Pantomimes are looking like a safe bet at the moment ;-)
Agamemnon is slain by Clytemnestra. Clytemnestra is slain by her avenging son, Otestes. The House of Mycenae lies in ruins. Orestes is condemned to death by his own citizens. Tormented by guilt, desperate and alone, it takes just a small spark to ignite the forces of his destructive wrath. Shocking in its modernity and compelling in its tragic vision, Orestes is Euripdes' savage twist on the legendary fall of an ancient dynasty.
