About This Show

Charles Mee’s irreverent, surreal and heartbreaking retelling of the Oresteia wheels brother and sister, Orestes and Electra, through a nightmarish and comic dreamscape of autopsy suites, hospital wards, kangaroo courtrooms and hostage takings as they face the emotional and legal consequences of having murdered their mother, who murdered their father. Mee uses humor and horror to link Orestes and Electra’s story to serial killers, political scandal, terrorism and war.

The cast includes Julia Arazi, Joseph Carusone, Barrett Doss, Neil Donahue, Paula Ehrenberg, Robert Fuller, Jessica Kaye , Daniel Manley, Bobby Moreno, David Myers, Hugh Sinclair, Peter Schuyler, Dj Thacker, and Carleigh Welsh.
