What is the cost of a woman’s success when it comes at the expense of her family? Agamemnon is about to find out.
In this new version of Aeschylus’s classic Greek tragedy, Agamemnon is a pop icon just returned home from her nine-month, round-the-world concert tour.
Agamemnon has returned home to take care of unfinished business: dump her former partner Chris, grab her stuff and make off with her new flame, Kass. But Chris has other ideas for their first night together in nine months, and was hoping for a kind of reconciliation – and at least the chance to process the unresolved grief he holds for the death of their son, Gene, less than a year ago.
Suddenly, memories that Agamemnon has tried so hard to keep buried begin to surface so vividly she could die. And she very well might. This original Australian work is partially told by a lively chorus, and the script oozes with Australian authenticity.
