After Electra

28 January 2022–5 February 2022

Company of Ten

Studio

Synopsis

Virgie, an eccentric free spirit of the 1960s, invites her family and friends to a birthday celebration. There she drops a bombshell that forces everyone to deal with the complexities of self-determination, the sacrifices demanded by motherhood and the cruel nature of the ageing process. Will her loved ones go along with her plans or will the secrets that come to light lead to a new beginning?

After Electra explores big themes in a way that’s entertaining and deeply moving. A Younger Theatre called it ‘a funny and brutally honest discussion of life, ageing and death… endlessly refreshing.’ What’s On Stage admired that the play balanced ‘laugh-out-loud wit and comedy with passionate declamation and pathos’.

Contains strong language and adult themes.

Please note that the wearing of masks at the Abbey Theatre, unless you are exempt, remains mandatory during the show. Thank you for your understanding.
