Phèdre is married to the notorious demigod, King Theseus, who has been missing - thought to be lost in the underworld. When rumours of his death reach her, forbidden desire erupts in a confession of devastating love for her stepson. But when the King returns, this mythic tale of erotic obsession explodes with wild accusations, chilling curses and violent deaths.

Peter Evans directs Racine's tragic love story from Ted Hughes' passionately wrought translation of love, betrayal, humiliation, despair and death. And takes a fresh look at one of the most important tragedies in French theatre.

Starring Catherine McClements as Phèdre, this elegant, suspense-filled tragedy explores the power of human emotion. Of what it can create and what it can destroy.
