‘A magician.’ The Times
‘A philosophical play of ideas, exploring loss, war, and incest in Ancient Greece, by the celebrated author of The Alexandria Quartet.
Lesbos, Ancient Greece. Lawrence Durrell’s intricate play follows vivid characters who represent different attitudes towards the role of the individual in the world, exploring how their lofty ideals are transformed when they become victims of unforeseeable real-life circumstances. Eloquent, tragic, poetic, Durrell’s parable is a powerful study of idealism in an imperfect universe, drawing vibrant parallels between the classical world and our modern existence.
