Mourning becomes Elektra (Expired)

Image Gallery

Could there be an invisible mechanism that crushes people’s lives? If yes, which one is it? One of the 20th century’s most important plays, Eugene O’Neil’s Mourning becomes Electra takes center stage at Ethniko Theatro on February 21st.  Considered to be a modern version of Orestia, the play takes place at the end of the American Civil War and traces the uneasy relationship of Brigadier-General Ezra Mannon with his wife, Christine Mannon, their son Orin and their daughter Lavinia. It’s a relationship full of raw, open wounds founded on an unwholesome past and a demented view of life. Just as important, the story of the Mannons is an honest, open discussion about the present.

Giannis Houvardas, the manager of Ethniko Theatro, is the play’s director and stage designer.
