A Hatch Theatre Company production in association with Project Arts Centre, 3 – 19 May 2007.

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 when the motives for the war start to look disturbingly personal, his wife becomes desperate to hold onto his love.

Martin Crimp’s new play takes Sophocles’ ancient story of marriage and violence, ‘The Trachiniae’, and propels it into a modern world of hypocrisy and emotional terrorism.
