Showing at

The Main Theatre

Thursday 12 October 7.30pm

A brother condemned to walk forever in the shadow of death
A family teetering on the brink of catastrophe
A world where one girl dares to take a stand

This blistering new adaptation sees Sophocles’ tragedy re-imagined in a dystopian landscape, where fate is written in code and where drones flock across the skies. Brought to life by innovative theatre company Actors of Dionysus, this production combines bold ideas with passionate and visceral physical theatre.
