As children Orestes and his sister Electra were sent far awy, banished by their own mother. Years later, the city must vote to determine their future as they stand trial for her murder. Some say the killing should be met with banishment and that the cycle of revenge must be stopped. Others want blood… At its dazzling best when confronting epic stories and emotional complexity, Shared Experience stages this brand-new telling of Euripides’ potent drama of avenging siblings.

Unlike film, theatre doesn't have an official age classification organisation. That means all age recommendations are subjective and should be treated as guidelines unless otherwise stated. With this in mind, we ask you to use your judgement in regards to a show’s suitability prior to purchase. However, we are more than happy to help you make a decision.
