Adapted by Terri Brabon from the plays of Euripides, Aeschylus and Sophocles.

From the team that brought you last year's smash hit FRANKENSTEIN, comes a fresh new take on the original horror story of ancient times.

Ten years have passed since the murder of her father but Electra is not ready to forgive or forget. Lost in her grief and consumed by her desire for revenge, Electra plots a bloody retribution that will anger the Gods themselves.

"Such is a family divided. Such is a house accursed.
Such is the House of Atreus And woe of the one born first."

Adapted and Directed by Terri Brabon, FIRST BORN is deeply rooted in Greek Mythology following the works of Ancient Greece's best storytellers Aeschylus, Sophocles and Euripides to develop an original telling of the "Curse of the House of Atreus". Starring Bridge Project alumni and recent NIDA Graduate Emily Edwards in the role of Electra alongside Brendan O'Connor, Terri Brabon, John Goodson, Robert Street, Paris Walsh, Byron Howells, Anna Vella-Sams and the TheatreiNQ Ensemble as the Greek Chorus.  FIRST BORN promises to take the audience on a rollercoaster ride of myth, murder and madness.
