A macaronic (or portmanteau) House of Atreus at GSMD

The Guilhall School of Music and Drama have this on their website for the end of March.  For some reason, I feel quite hopeful about it, and £ 8 for three plays (one of which has two authors and at least one adaptor) must be good value for money!

The House of Atreus

A radical re-interpretation of a tragic cycle of family conflict, power and revenge

Iphigenia at Aulis by Euripides
Agamemnon by Aeschylus
Electra by Euripides/Sophocles

A vital story of war and retribution in a thrilling new fusion of three of the greatest plays of the ancient world. The family of Atreus crumbles under the pressure of a seemingly endless war and the impossible demands placed on one family.
