Fifths and Sixth Form present: Agamemnon, by Steven Berkoff

Thu, 04 December 2014 19:30, Ayckbourn Theatre

 “My husband is in Troy.He has left me. He is a memory that is faulty. He is desire curdled.”

In a city abandoned by its King waits a Queen whose heart is poisoned by betrayal, bloodshed and vitriol, her rage smouldering as she awaits an opportunity for revenge. The Fifth and Sixth Form pupils present a visceral and physical production of Berkoff’s retelling of this ancient text. Characterised by language which is at once poetic and grotesque, this is a play about lust, vengeance, the fervour of battle, the fatigue of long absence and the horror of war.

The audience will enter an industrial wasteland; a derelict, once powerful state populated by a chorus of elders who recall the city and its rulers’ experiences and actions. An ensemble cast will push themselves to their limits in a play that starts with the memory of a repugnant act of torture and whose characters are propelled to an inexorable and violent conclusion.

Tickets required. Please take your seat by 7.15pm

Tickets still available for Saturday performance only.

This event is fully booked.
