"Sky. Sky over all our heads. Sky over Argos that ties up much smaller threads. And yet leaves these. These family ties. Family ties that we’ll throw to the wind. And watch how they fly."

King Agamemnon is long dead. His wife and her new boyfriend were his murderers. But his children are starting to grow up. Children who grew up surrounded by death and conflict.

In this urgent new adaptation of Sophocles' tragedy, Aidan Tulloch injects the intensity of a poetry slam and the pulse of electronic music into Electra's fraught psyche. This is the tale of a young girl, floored by the crosswinds of her feuding family, grappling with loneliness, abandon, and a debilitating desire for revenge.

Blood might be thicker than water, but it's got nothing on dust.
