About the Play

Drama. 30-40 minutes. 5 females, 4 males, 1+ any gender (10-40+ performers possible).

Elektra premiered at Timber Creek High School Thespians (Orlando, FL) in 2014.


Following the brutal murder of her father at the hands of her mother, Elektra is trapped, in body and mind, as she yearns for revenge and contends with the voices in her head. Where is she? How did she get there? Where is her brother, Orestes? And why does the doctor who visits her seem so...familiar? Through a fusion of elevated and contemporary language—and with a Greek chorus that lends itself to movement-based storytelling—Elektra tells the ancient Greek tragedy with a dynamic and provocative examination of the mental, physical and societal barriers preventing Elektra from acting out her will.
