Far away a battle rages and an entire city is turned to dust. Amelia can’t sleep. She waits for news of her husband. He’s a great General and this seems to be a decisive victory. But when the motives for the war start to look disturbingly personal, his wife becomes desperate to hold onto his love.
Martin Crimp’s new play takes Sophocle’s ancient story of marriage and violence The Trachiniae and propels it into a modern world of political hypocrisy and emotional terrorism.
