at Riverside Studios, London
opened Tuesday 8th June 2004 until Sunday 28th June 2004

  This production was designed and made in the Theatre School at Wimbledon School of Art by a group of mainly undergraduate students under staff supervision. I performed the role of consultant and design coordinator largely as support for my long-term collaborator the production's director, Alkis Kritikos. The production was technically, dress rehearsed and previewed by an invited audience in the School's theatre as preparation for the short fit-up schedule at Riverside Studios.  

Returning from the murder

Transported from ancient myth to the present day, Clytemnestra, Iphigenia, Aegisthus and
Agamemnon struggle to escape their original destinies and return to life. Occupying a grotesque, bizarre and darkly comic world, the play turns the conventional characters and stories surreally on their heads. Clytemnestra is the “woman with a man’s heart”, and, enveloped in blood and violence, her quest to rediscover love and passion reaches a surprising and spectacular climax. The cast included Hollywood star Sarah Douglas (Superman 1 & II, Falcon Crest, Conan the Destroyer) Glenn Conroy, Kitty O’Lone, Maureen Purkis and the first UK stage appearance of Stratos Tzortzoglou.
