        Clytemnestra         Nothing         Some People Talk About Violence



Clytemnestra

Clytemnestra
Agamemnon must sacrifice his daughter, Clytemnestra must try to stop him, Iphigenia must accept her fate, the Chorus must watch. Ships lie dormant in harbours, and thousands of troops sit on the shore, growing restless and unruly. Helen is gone, and pursuit of her has been stalled by windless seas. To raise the winds to send his fleet to Troy, Agamemnon is commanded by the gods to sacrifice his daughter, Iphigenia. But his deceit of his wife, Clytemnestra and the killing of his child, will end up tearing him and everything around him to pieces. Euripides' story of a father moved to murder his daughter, Iphigenia at Aulis, is one that has been reinvented and retold anew throughout history. The Iphigenia Quartet sees four of the UK's most exciting and radical playwrights - Caroline Bird (Agamemnon), Suhayla El Bushra (Iphigenia), Lulu Raczka (Clytemnestra), and Chris Thorpe (Chorus) - create explosive responses to this classical tragedy. Each play is a reimagining this story of familial catastrophe from the differing perspectives of the key characters in the play: Agamemnon, Clytemnestra, Iphigenia and the Chorus.

Nothing

Nothing
Nothing is much more than a series of monologues. It is about - among other things - cupcakes, action films, crap television, shitting, sex, buses and stalking. It is about alienation and being young. Initially written as eight monologues by Lulu Raczka (winner of the Sunday Times Young Playwriting Award), Nothing asks questions about the nature of theatre itself as performers improvise a new cut with every performance, each starting the show without knowing which particular monologue they will be performing on that occasion. Nothing is thus a game for both performer and audience, but it is also a serious interrogation of the structures within which we live.

Some People Talk About Violence

Some People Talk About Violence
There is no use in rage. There is no use in screaming. There is no use in crying out and screaming 'this is unfair', just wait, cause no one cares. In a world of globalization and greed, of zero-hour contracts and The Big Bang Theory, violence worms its way into every aspect of our lives. Following their debut show Nothing, multi award-winning young company Barrel Organ present Some People Talk About Violence. Expect people, or just ideas, in mindless frustration, on the edge of some kind of revolt.
