What is currently on at Rose Theatre Kingston (V051452426)


In this reworking of the ancient Greek Oresteia Trilogy, Klytemnestra and Elektro, mother and daughter, face one another in a dramatic confrontation. Their attempts to come to terms with their violent past echo the testimonies delivered in the wake of apartheid all over South Africa as part of the Truth and Reconciliation Commission.
