Euripides' Alcestis

Theatre
VIC
Scaled brie and liv shoulder 800x800 web
The story of a woman's willing sacrifice for love, and the casual acceptance of her death by all around her. Fickle fates, uncaring gods and selfish men conspire to send Alcestis to Hades in her husband's place. An irreverent and disturbing exploration of Euripides' most elusive story, through movement, music and Irish Language song.
