Summary

Furious that Prince Hippolytus will not worship her, Aphrodite, goddess of love, seeks revenge. Infecting Hippolytus’ stepmother, Phaedra, with an overpowering desire for him, Aphrodite’s retribution will sweep both prince and queen to a brutal end.

A secret torment
Storms through her
Tosses her into that black harbour
Death.

Timberlake Wertenbaker’s translation of Euripides’ tragedy Hippolytus premiered at Riverside Studios, London, in February, 2009 in a production by Temple Theatre.
