WHAT IS IT ABOUT?

Katie Mitchell directs Iphigenia at Aulis by Euripides, translated by Don Taylor. The Greek fleet assembles in the bay of Aulis in readiness to launch an attack on Troy, but the wind suddenly drops and the ships stand idle. The army blame their leader who, in danger of losing his command, panics and jumps at a solution: to sacrifice his own daughter to the gods, in return for a favourable wind. Just how far will a leader go in order to save face and secure a military victory in the East?
