HIPPOLYTUS UNPLUGGED

 

written & directed by Justin Butcher

“A modern classic … an overwhelmingly intelligent adaptation of the story of Phaedra and Hippolytus … uproarious, witty, clever and comic … the atmosphere crackles with danger and sexual tension … as intelligent as it is hilarious. Full service is done to the profundity of the Classical original. This is no dumbed-down adaptation, but an entirely more cerebral affair.” 

(The Scotsman)

 

“The spirit of Euripides is alive and well … with an expert sense of verse and vulgarity …genuinely sordid but always hilarious … Living proof that the Greeks will never be too old for today.” 

(The Daily Telegraph)

 

“Hilarious and grim tale … a thoroughly effective update … enormous, detached and grotesque fun for the audience.”
