1942. New Jersey, USA. Welcome to the world of Mr and Mrs Antrobus, a remarkable family who have survived every catastrophe throughout history by ‘the skin of their teeth’.

Cruel and Tender.
by Martin Crimp after Sophocles' Trachiniae
5 - 15 May 2004 & 17 June - 10 July 2004

Produced by Young Vic, Wiener Festwochen and Chichester Festival Theatre productions
It is directed by Luc Bondy, and designed by Richard Peduzzi
Far away a battle rages and an entire city is turned to dust. Amelia can't sleep. She waits for news of her husband. He's a great general and this seems to be a decisive victory. But as the motives for the war start to look disturbingly personal, his wife becomes desperate to hold on to his love.
Martin Crimp’s new play takes Sophocles' ancient story of marriage and violence - Trachiniae - and propels it into a modern world of political hypocrisy and emotional terroism.
