SUMMARY

Elektra's father has been murdered - and now she wants justice.

Down in the fields outside the house, amidst the sound of old spirituals and work songs, she plots revenge upon the killer: her own mother. First she must await the return of her brother Orestes. But when he finally arrives on a sweltering summer's day, can he be the hero she wants him to be?

Ezra Pound and Rudd Fleming's visionary translation relocates the Greek tragedy to the deep south of America in a startling new take on this gripping tale of family feud and retribution.
