Set in a intimate bunker with three distinct but inter-twinned stories of wars

Set in a intimate bunker with three distinct but inter-twinned stories of wars
 
Jethro Compton's stunning trilogy of legends re-imagined within the confines of a World War I bunker. Through careful staging and terrific adaptations of the text, Compton creates a world outside the bunker, filled with life and characters.

 
 

 
The fusion of a Greek myth, Agamemnon with the First World War setting is more seamless. The classical story of a soldier’s return from war only to be murdered by his wife’s lover is re-imagined in a neat little script by Wilkes that sees guilt over a past infidelity haunt and kill a wandering hero as readily as any bullet.
It’s a journey into the delusions of a shell shocked solider, devastated by war, cut off from help, convinced of a plot to bring him down. Bloodied and wounded the officer dreams of his return to England; to his home, to his wife. As the darkness descends and the enemy mounts its final attack, only one thought haunts Agamemnon, ‘What is there to live for?’
