Sophocles' classic drama of a daughter's revenge of her father's murder has been translated into playable language for modern audiences. As an example of Sophoclean tragedy, with its fatalistic acceptance of human doom, Electra is unsurpassed. It is, in addition, a potent metaphor for the current disintegration of some European nations.
The Plays for Performance series is edited by Nicholas Rudall, former artistic director of the Court Theatre at the University of Chicago where he is professor of classics, and Bernard Sahlins, founder and director of the Second City. They both live in Chicago, Illinois.
