Splendid Productions present an epic, murderous tale of family, history, vengeance and honour in a story nearly as old as theatre. 

Condensing Aeschylus’s classic trilogy into an hour, Splendid’s regal cast of three retell the story of King Agamemnon, his queen Clytemnestra, and their children,  Iphigenia, Electra and Orestes. A legendary family born to power, but destined to rip itself apart in a bloody cycle of tragedy. 

Splendid’s new creative adaptation explores the place where rage meets justice in an artful, political, physical, musical, entertainingly furious – and furiously entertaining – piece of theatrical magic. 

Venue: Quays Theatre

Reviews

“A matchless way of introducing ancient theatre to the young.”

South Wales Argus

“I generally don’t laugh this loud when called upon to watch a Greek myth.”

Bouquets & Brickbats

“Brilliantly imaginative… uproariously funny. multi-talented, multi-voiced, multi-bodied… needle sharp.”
