The Trojan War is over, but for Idomeneus the greatest struggle awaits his return – a crucible of the soul. A chorus weaves fates and stories into a wrenching lyrical epic from one of Europe’s most exciting contemporary playwrights.

Approximate running time: 70 minutes with no intermission. 

Director Alan Dilworth put together some background notes about the Greek mythology of Idomeneus, read it here.
