A woman in a dirty dress looks at us out of the darkness.

By Sophocles. In a version by Anne Carson. Directed by Carrie Cracknell.

A Young Vic production in association with Headlong.

Entrapped by her grief and a burning sense of injustice, Elektra battles to find purpose in life after the murder of her father. Will revenge bring her relief and freedom? Or will it continue to trap her family in an endless cycle of violence?

Director Carrie Cracknell blends movement, music and text in a haunting exploration of Sophocles' masterpiece.
