Phaedras Love

Phaedras Love Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

First single volume edition of this bold version of a classic by Sarah Kane

Sarah Kane's radical reworking of Seneca's classical tragedy of incest and unrequited lust. Phaedra's Love is a bold and provocative revisioning of the story of Phaedra's obsessive and destructive love of her son Hippolytus and his violent punishment by Theseus.

 

Synopsis:

Hippolytus, the spoiled prince, is driven to preserve his self inviolate. Emotions, particularly love, and need of any type are an unbearable threat to the prince. Phaedra, his stepmother, is in love with him. The impossibility of the situation leads to their bloody destruction.

Synopsis:

A reworking of classical myth, this harrowing play is a brutal exposure of love at its most impure and dangerous.
