Phaedra is widely regarded as Purcarete's masterpiece. Within 75 intense and haunting minutes, the spectator experiences a spectrum of emotions and styles: black humour, choric ritual, brutal violence, intimate grief.
The ancient story of the gods tormenting mankind for their sport is a mesmerising spectacle, told in ghostly moonlight by a company of 33 actors.

The residency of the National Theatre of Craiova was made possible by the support of the Patrons of the Dublin Theatre Festival.
