The Iphigenia Quartet

One tragedy
Two parts
Four explosive plays

Agamemnon faces an impossible choice, he is a father commanded by the gods to sacrifice his daughter. In doing so, he will lose his wife, Clytemnestra and bury his child, Iphigenia. Ever present over his shoulder, the Chorus awaits Iphigenia’s fate.

The Iphigenia Quartet</i. explores this domestic catastrophe from the perspective of each key player. Clytemnestra grapples with the ultimate betrayal, Iphigenia boldly accepts her fate, Agamemnon wrestles with an impossible choice, and the Chorus powerlessly observe, unable to look away.

The classic Greek story of Iphigenia at Aulis is retold by four of the UK’s most exciting and radical playwrights; Caroline Bird, Suhayla El-Bushra, Lulu Raczka and Chris Thorpe.
