The Almeida's Oresteia transfers to Trafalgar Studios
It has been announced that the Almeida Theatre's production of Oresteia will transfer to the Trafalgar Studios 1 for a limited season from 22 August to 7 November 2015, with an official opening on 7 September 2015.
The production is a new adaptation of the classic Greek text by Aeschylus created by Robert Icke, who also directs. It originally ran at the off-West End venue in Islington from 29 May to 18 July 2015.
Lia Williams stars as 'Klytemnestra', alongside Lorna Brown, Jessica Brown Findlay, Annie Firbank, Joshua Higgott, Luke Thompson, Angus Wright and Hara Yannas.
"Orestes’ parents are at war. A family drama spanning several decades, a huge, moving, bloody saga, Aeschylus’ greatest and final play asks whether justice can ever be done – and continues to resonate more than two millennia after it was written."
The production features designs by Hildegard Bechtler and lighting design by Natasha Chivers.
Tickets for the production go on general sale on Tuesday 4 August 2015.
