Martha Henry is fantastic. Kelly Fox as Cassandra is fabulously mad. Seanna McKenna sobs for all mothers hearing that her son is to die. It is heartbreaking and stunning, and her interaction with her son is so powerful, you absolutely believe that this poor boy will be killed.
The staging reminds me why I love the Patterson – you are so close you think you are in the play.
I can’t believe that I lived so long without coming to Greek tragedy – it is amazing and the Stratford productions over the last couple of years have been great.
