"Meta-theatre writ large ... Powerful and well realised" (The Tab)

In this double bill of tragedy’s most troubled children, it is the chorus who take centre stage, while the heroes are forced to struggle for the limelight. But in the House of Pelops, old habits die hard…


two new plays

written by Ceci Mourkogiannis, Heather Williams and Celine Lowenthal

adapted from Sophocles' Oedipus Rex and Electra

Showing at theSpace on The Mile 2, 2nd-18th August, 6pm.

Oedipus// It's the 2503th performance of "Oedipus Tyrannus" and Chorus 6 wants to call it quits. The tragic hero, however, isn't quite ready to end the performance. Can a plot be altered, can a well-known story be changed? The minor actors are determined to escape a theatrical prison... but the protagonist has other ideas.

Electra // Electra’s daddy’s been killed. Her mummy’s fucking the murderer. At night she dreams of blades and flesh, but come dawn she’s like a little girl. Until something inside starts to change. Blood. Milk. Dirt. In a post-Freudian world, revenge is a sexual awakening...

Following sell out shows in Cambridge and London, Terrible Edgar are proud to present 'The Complex: Oedipus and Electra' at the Edinburgh fringe.
