The Story

Clytemnestra, the wife of Greek King Agamemnon and sister of Helen, is a grief-stricken woman who lost her daughter Iphigenia. The reason for her child's death is her husband, who sacrificed his daughter to reach Troy to fight the Trojan War.

The heroine of Girl On An Altar is a mother who cannot come to accept the fact of her child's death. To say that Clytemnestra is sad is an understatement. She confronts her husband to understand why he would tear her world apart without thinking twice, just to win a war.

Girl On An Altar puts forth Clytemnestra's grief, Agamemnon's unfathomable deed, and many questions about men and their actions. Watch this Greek mythology come alive in London…book Girl On An Altar London tickets now whilst availability lasts.
