If you mess with the Ancient Greeks, beware a little blood.
In the charnel house of Greek legend one room is forever reserved for that most ferocious of tales - Thyestes, the deposed king whose sons were slaughtered and served as a feast to their unwitting father.
Treating mythological atrocity as contemporary reality, fast-track director Simon Stone (the man behind Belvoir hits The Wild Duck and Neighbourhood Watch) retells this Greco-Roman epic as a series of domestic scenes exploring the mundanity of violence.
Terrifyingly observed, savagely comic and ultimately heartrending, Thyestes is a modern journey through the darkest of legends.
Thyestes contains strong sexual themes and violent references. It is not recommended for people under 18.
