A Nuworks Production
This is our own faithful adaptation which includes all of the elements of the original. It is highly theatrical and we have written a complete music score that accompanies, amplifies and underscores the dialogue. For inspiration we have taken the style of Nick Cave to write the songs. These have been overlaid with rap and hip hop ( the Musical phenomenon Hamilton was our point of reference here ) The drama is didactic and explores, as all of the Greek Tragedies do, the irrationality of the human spirit. Through the play we make some direct reference to the contemporary world.
This is a very serious piece of theatre suitable for an audience above 13 years of age.
The primary theme is of Revenge, There is no swearing, not because we made any deliberate choice about this but rather because it was unnecessary in the context of the storytelling.
