and with the support of Redbridge Drama Centre and Bradfield College we are delighted to share more information regarding our forthcoming Autumn tour:

A brother condemned to walk forever in the shadow of death.

A family teetering on the brink of catastrophe.

A world where one girl dares to take a stand.

This blistering new adaptation sees Sophocles’ tragedy reimagined in a dystopian landscape, where fate is written in code and where drones flock across the skies. Brought to life by innovative theatre company Actors of Dionysus, this production combines bold ideas with passionate and visceral physical theatre.
