Description One of the most powerful and compelling anti-war plays ever written, Euripides' tragedy reels with the consequences of destruction.
By distilling the essence of this masterpiece to reveal a disturbing visceral chamber work, the award-winning team of Barrie Kosky and Tom Wright will once again focus their unique scrutiny on the realm of mythology illuminating its enduring connection to the contemporary world.
