Phaedra’s Love

Phaedra’s Love is Sarah Kane’s radical reworking of Seneca’s classical tragedy of incest and unrequited lust. It 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.

“Corcadorca’s striking and imaginative production of Sarah Kane’s Phaedra’s Love, a dark and dirty version of Seneca’s tragedy Phaedra, is an astonishing combination of multi-media spectacle and theatrical Pageant.”

“Manages to seduce and repel and ultimately enthral not only in what it does but also in what it tries to do. Theatre should be brave more often.
The Sunday Tribune

“This is a vital and terrifying theatre, a stunning and overwhelming experience”
The Sunday Times

“…an exciting piece of theatre. It has style, integrity, originality and quality”
The Sunday Independant
