NUI Galway Theatre Week:

6 plays from today, March 9th until next Friday, some workshops on Shakespeare and a few movies to be enjoyed by students and general public make up this year’s NUI Galway Theatre Week.

NUI Galway Theatre Week:

Among the plays, Frank McGuinness’s adaptation of Sophocles’ “Electra“, that has been described by “New York Times” critic Peter Mark as a “sleek and hypnotic text” which showcases “soul-satisfying drama at its most passionately, intensely alive.” This production resurrects the history of the House of Atreus to ask what does Electra mean today and what can we learn by returning to the classics through the lens of the now.

Frank McGuinness will be attending the Monday Morning performance with talk back to follow.
