After wowing at the trailblazing Almeida Theatre, this brand-new staging extravaganza of three Greek tragedies comes to the West End for a strictly limited engagement, opening in September. Robert Icke has created a new modernised version of Aeschylus' Oresteia, which sees an eminent family torn apart by jealousy and murder, the consequences of which can be felt over later generations. Orestes, the son must decide whether to avenge his father's death at the hands of his mother; but murdering a parent carries a curse that he must carry for years afterwards. Veteran stage actress Lia Williams plays the villainous role of Klytemnestra.
