Performances were held in the CAPITAL Studio, Millburn House on Wednesday 14th, Thursday 15th and Friday 16th March 2012.
Following a recent rehearsed reading at IATL, this new, absurdly dark play - which places a domestic twist on the classical legacy of Greek tragedy - is now to be a fully fledged project that will focus both on an exploration of the play's sources and origins, and on researching the theatrical practitioners and absurdist writers that can place a piece like this into understandable and highly modern terms. We aim to document the problems of writing/directing, and more generally to provide a resource that can explain page-to-stage skills, that encapsulates our theatrical research and that advertises what will hopefully become a stunning piece of new writing. Our final performances aim to demonstrate the contemporary relevance and appeal of millenia-old topics in a play that is a product of its origins, but innovational in its production design and staging.
