Euripides’ post-war play is re-set in the world of today. In the wake of the murder of Clytemnestra, her children Orestes and Electra prepare to stand trial for matricide. Meanwhile, the veterans of the Trojan War return home to face the shadows of the horrors they thought they left behind. In this final episode of the most celebrated trilogy of 400 BCE, the House of Atreus is brought to their knees by their own imperial dreams. It’s a nightmare, really.

"Playing the role of a sociopathic character whose motivations shifted between relentless love and a desire for absolute chaos was thrilling! Pylades came into the action anytime the dust seemed to settle, and he was unafraid to use people as pawns to meet his ends."
