AbstractHistoryArchive Description

'Orestes has come back to bury his father. He has been away a long time. His mother is hardened, his sister is strangely ill. He will see them, he will bury his father, and then, in all likelihood, he will drift away again. But in a bar one night, slightly drunk, he meets a gentle soul called Pylades...

'Kit Brookman's play springs from the myth of Orestes and the House of Atreus, but Brookman's leap of imagination has been to fully dissolve the myth into the contemporary world.' (Source: http://www.stagewhispers.com.au/news/2013-season-belvoir )
