Synopsis

Ah yes. Peace. The religion of tyrants.

After a ten year siege, the city of Troy finally lies in ruin. The Greek army, led by Agamemnon, scatters and returns home laden with the spoils of war. Meanwhile, Agamemnon’s wife, Clytemnestra, awaits with murder in her heart — bitter still about the loss of her daughter Iphigenia and full of her own political ambitions. The opening chapter of Aeschylus’ Oresteia is reimagined as a visceral, contemporary fable.
