Electra description

Director Ian Rickson and Kristin Scott Thomas reunite to bring Sophocles’ tragedy to The Old Vic in the round, with a charged adaptation by Frank McGuinness of the classic drama of Electra and Orestes’ revenge on their father’s murderers. 

Electra is the princess of Argos, daughter of King Agamemnon and Queen Clytemnestra. 

A few years after the Trojan War, Agamemnon has been murdered by Clytemnestra. Electra becomes consumed with her quest to avenge her father's death, and plots to kill her mother with her brother Orestes' help.
