About

Film star Kristin Scott Thomas (The English Patient, Four Weddings and a Funeral, Only God Forgives) takes on Greek tragedy this autumn, playing the title role in Sophocles’ Electra at the Old Vic, in a new version by Frank McGuinness

The tale revolves around the attempts of Electra, along with her brother Orestes, to avenge the death of their father Agamemnon, after he was slain by their mother and her lover on his return from Troy. 

The show is directed by Ian Rickson, who is best known for his work on new plays, including the hit show Jerusalem. Rickson approaches the classics as he would a brand new piece of writing, with no old staging traditions attached to it. Hence his controversial recent production of Hamlet, starring Michael Sheen, which relocated the action to an asylum.
