The Furies
  • Edinburgh Fringe

A gig inspired by Clytemnestras Greek revenge myth, casting her Furies of vengeance as front women of a rock band. Operatic laments of a woman wronged are spliced together with heavy metal rages from her aggressor and the haunting lullabies of his mistress. With screaming guitars and heavy bass, pounding drums and heartbreaking saxophone this wildly unreserved hour of visceral music theatre sends you reeling into the night more than a little dazed. 'They use their voices and bodies as weapons' (Lyn Gardner, Guardian). 'Musically, it's an unmitigated triumph' (Metro). British Council Edinburgh Showcase 2015.
