AbstractHistoryArchive Description

'Treating mythological atrocity as contemporary reality, The Hayloft Project's retelling of this Greco-Roman epic unfolds as a series of domestic scenes exploring the mundanity of violence. Terrifyingly observed, savagely comic and ultimately heartrending, "Thyestes" is a modern journey through the darkest days of history.'
