SUMMARY

Admetos is the perfect leader: popular, polished and charismatic. Beloved by his people and the gods alike, now he's got a way to get what everyone desires: more time. The only problem is, it comes at a price.

Ted Hughes' translation of Euripides' play brings an ancient story into the 20th century. Set in 1997, this is Greek Tragedy in the age of celebrity.
