“Resonant, thrilling and modern reworking of Aeschylus' trilogy... Moments of breath-caught-in-throat tension. ”

Natasha Tripney (The Stage, Time Out)

“The dramas are refashioned, set in an abstract 21st century, framed as part of an investigation... Tremendous. ”

Susannah Clapp (The Observer)

“Remarkable reworking of Aeschylus’s Oresteia trilogy... Works... thanks to Icke’s searingly modern script and superlative cast. ”

Andrzej Lukowski (Time Out)

“Icke daringly extrapolates from an Aeschylean chorus the drama of Agamemnon’s sacrifice of his daughter... Striking performances”

Michael Billington (The Guardian)

“A meaty hybrid of courtroom drama and morally exacting epic... Icke makes the subject matter feel bracingly modern. ”

Henry Hitchings (Evening Standard)

“Robert Icke’s radical adaptation of Aeschylus’s trilogy from 458BC is both thrilling and frightening... Stunning. ”

Dominic Maxwell (The Times)

“Daring and deeply disquieting... Tackles the questions raised by Aeschylus's great trilogy in a fiercely fresh manner. ”

Paul Taylor (The Independent)

“Ample food for thought – but the evening only truly blazes in its thrilling moments of back-to-basics, heart-on-sleeve acting. ”

Dominic Cavendish (The Telegraph)

“Sets a determinedly casual and domestic tone while obliterating the distinctions between gods, chorus and human royalty. ”

Michael Coveney (What's on Stage, The Stage, Independent)
