THYESTES

SYDNEY FESTIVAL AND BELVOIR IN ASSOCIATION WITH CARRIAGEWORKS PRESENT

THYESTES

ORIGINALLY CREATED BY THE HAYLOFT PROJECT

It is the most infamous of all the ancients – the story of the deposed king whose sons were slaughtered and served to him by his brother in a feast.

The Hayloft Project stunned audiences with this brilliant re-imagining at Melbourne’s Malthouse Theatre in 2010. Their starting point: THESE MYTHS ARE REAL. The action of the show, much like our lives, takes place in the banalities and ordinarinesses between atrocities.

Featuring three extraordinary performances, the result is truly groundbreaking – gentle, disturbing, funny, beautiful and chilling in 90 minutes. Sydney Festival and Belvoir head to Carriageworks with this dangerously smart excavation of our ancient urges towards love and destruction.

Co-written by Thomas Henning, Chris Ryan, Simon Stone and Mark Winter after Seneca.
Directed by Simon Stone.

A Malthouse Melbourne Commission
