"Nick Payne's urgent new version of Sophocles Electra is another in a long line of boundary breaking offerings . Payne [is] one of our brightest new playwrights Electra-fying" The Evening Standard "Poised and punchy" The Arts Desk "Payne's translation has a flinty seriousness A punchy account of a classic play." The Stage "dark, bloody, anguished Payne's version, linguistically, is spare and simplified, with a graceful eloquence; quite stylised on the page, but completely natural in the mouths of the actors " 4 stars Exuent Magazine "Nick Payne's new version [has] the feel of a contemporary gangster movie a tough modern version of the tragedy that has poetic moments and maintains pace throughout" British Theatre Guide
