An urgent re-framing of the classic Greek tragedy.

A young prince has murdered his mother in a bloody act of revenge. The curse of the Royal House of Argos is raging, the cycle of revenge continues…

A raucous mob of rebels have been rejected and discarded by the new regime. They unify and go into hiding underground - with Prince Orestes as their hostage. Now their time has come to take action - to take justice into their hands - to be heard.

You decide. You become the jury and
determine Orestes' fate.

Orestes Re-Examined, is an urgent, high octane and radical reinvention of Aeschylus'tragic revenge cycle. Fusing ritual movement, live original music, unique text and a thumping drum and bass underscore, this is a potent and claustrophobic world, where everyone is implicated.

Following an acclaimed run in 2008 in Bath, and a tour of prisons in the South West, this revival production promises an immersive audience experience, which will stimulate,
challenge and thrill.

"Emma Gersch's direction is strikingly poetic and moving"
