LSBU Student Theatre Company Presents…
Sophocles’ Electra in a new version by Frank McGuinness
15-16 December – 7.00pm
Locked into a bloody cycle of murder and reprisal, Electra, haunted by her father’s assassination, in consumed by grief and a thirst for vengeance. When her brother Orestes at last returns, she urges him to a savage and horrifying conclusion.
Frank McGuinness’s highly charged adaptation of Sophocles’ powerful tragedy was first performed at the Chichester Festival Theatre in 1997, and was revived at the Old Vic, London, in 2014. LSBU Student Theatre Company brings it back to London with vivid colour and a choral voice.
Directed by Lucy Pitman-Wallace.
