A Translation of Aeschylus' Trilogy of Plays
By Ted Hughes
Directed by Anastasia Revi
Sacrifice. War. Victory. Troy has fallen. King Agamemnon returns a hero with his trophy- a Trojan priestess. Crimes weigh heavily on him. A sumptuous welcome awaits him. A trap. His wife, Clytemnestra, and her lover, his cousin Aegisthus - both want revenge for past crimes. Duty calls for exiled Prince Orestes to avenge his father and cease the raging curse of Atreus.
