About this show

Believing her husband to be dead, the passionate Queen Phèdre allows her forbidden love for her stepson to blossom. When the King returns from war very much alive, the entire family is catapulted into a desperate, impossible situation. The sole American engagement of the National Theatre of Great Britain's production of Phèdre starring Academy Award winner Dame Helen Mirren will be at Sidney Harman Hall for a limited 12 performance run. Artistic Director Nicholas Hytner directs a superb cast, including Dominic Cooper and Margaret Tyzack, in Ted Hughes' adaptation of Jean Racine's epic tragedy.
