Phaedra, National Theatre by Sebastian Nevols
In a house of glass, one must not throw stones.
After years of fierce focus on her political career, Phaedra turns her attention to her personal life.
The reappearance of her step-son shakes the foundations of her house and the beliefs that have underpinned her power.
As buried lust and loneliness surge to the surface, Phaedra’s actions threaten to destroy everything she has built.
Writer-Director Simon Stone (Yerma, Young Vic) reimagines Seneca’s famous tragedy in this striking new play. Janet McTeer (Ozark) takes the title role, with Assaad Bouab (Call My Agent) making his UK stage debut.
