Mourning Becomes Electra at the National Theatre of Greece

Don’t miss on the chance to watch the play Mourning Becomes Electra by Eugene O’ Neill at the National Theatre of Greece until May 19, 2013.

After the American Civil War, General Ezra Mannon returns to his New England home. But the house of Mannon, with its dark history and unhealthy psychology, hides many open wounds. The pathological love of Ezra’s wife Christine for her son Orin, her difficult relationship with her daughter Lavinia and the arrival of an outsider mean that there will be no end to the cycle of hatred, revenge and destructive love that has already blighted the family in the past – until everyone has been brought to account.

Eugene O’Neill reworks the myth of Orestes and updates it into a modern trilogy, revealing the corrosion of the bourgeoisie hidden by a flawless facade.

The expansive material of the trilogy has been adapted and condensed into a single play by the Artistic Director of the Greek National Theatre, Yannis Houvardas, who, together with a cast of major actors and actresses, presents one of the most important works of the twentieth century.
