This thrilling new play by writer/director Simon Stone (Yerma) sees the classic tragedy by Euripides, Seneca and Racine completely reimagined for the 21st Century.
A powerful cast includes Janet McTeer (Ozark) as Phaedra, with Assaad Bouab (Call My Agent, Bad Sisters) in his London stage debut, and Mackenzie Davis, John Macmillan, Rhys Bailey, Archie Barnes, Paul Chahidi, Mackenzie Davis, Nicholas Gauci, Mohsen Ghaffari, Akiya Henry, Johanne Murdock, Nadia Nadif, Emmanuel Olusanya, Sirine Saba and Dot Williams.
In the play, after years of fierce focus on her political career, a politician (Janet McTeer) turns her attention to her personal life. The reappearance of a figure from her past shakes the foundations of her house and the beliefs that have underpinned her power. As buried lust and loneliness surge to the surface, her actions threaten to destroy everything she has built.
Phaedra is playing at the National Theatre until 8 April 2023.
