Electra Electra | 2014 Keith Dixon

This is a haunting new version by Nick Payne of Sophocles’ tragic masterpiece, Electra performed at Lir National Academy for Dramatic Arts, Trinity College, Dublin for my MFA thesis.

When a young Electra’s father is murdered by her mother, her world changes irrevocably. Ten years on, bound by grief and unwilling to forgive, Electra surrenders to an all-consuming desire for revenge that propels her towards a bloody and terrifying conclusion.
