In the recent past, audiences have relished Tony Tanner's interpretations of The Aftermath, Medea, The Wine God, The Trojan Woman, and others. Phaedra is the next step in his re-telling of these potent myths to modern ears, in an attempt to show the common humanity which underlies each one of them.
The frustrated passion that can only be assuaged, it seems, by the death of someone or other...
The tears of regret, shed over and over for lies told and too readily believed.
Viewers will find this in Phaedra and be shocked almost by its immediacy and in its ability to move an audience beyond itself and the measure of its own experience.
