Agamemnon, victorious commander-in-chief of the Greek forces at Troy, returns in triumph to his home in Argos. But he has a bad past. Ten years earlier his pursuit of victory at all costs caused him to sacrifice his daughter Iphigenia, and the girl’s mother, Clytemnestra, has neither forgotten nor forgiven.

Agamemnon is the earliest and greatest of Greek Tragedies.

in situ:’s outstanding ensemble of performers, combined with installation, physical theatre and a new translation created by director and cast are the main ingredients in an electrifying new performance of Aeschylus’ compelling tale of infanticide and vendetta.

NB: This is a promenade performance, but chairs are provided and it is possible to sit down at most times during the performance.

Then, later in the year, we’ve got:

WILD – a new performance about wildness and wilderness, directed by Bella Stewart, and taking place in the wonderful setting of Wandlebury Country Park, 4 – 7 July 2012.

Plus revivals of two of in situ:’s most popular productions:

King Lear: 14 – 16 June 2012, also at Wandlebury Country Park
Macbeth: 18 – 21 July 2012, at The Leper Chapel

Best wishes,

Richard, Bella and the in situ: team
