by Sophocles, adapted by Nathan Bowman
October 26 - 31, 2018, William Inge Memorial Theatre
Electra has hoped for her mother’s death, and with the surprise homecoming of her brother Orestes, her hope becomes reality. Reunited, the siblings seek vengeance for the death of their father at the hands of their mother. The play follows Electra’s psychological deterioration as she is pulled and manipulated by both her mother and brother. This highly-regarded Greek tragedy features one of the most well-developed female characters of the classical canon of theatre.
This production includes adult language and simulated violence. It may not be appropriate for all audiences.
