Written by Simon Stone after Euripides
Directed by Simon Stone

Produced by BAM, Internationaal Theater Amsterdam, and David Lan

Visionary director Simon Stone, creator of last season’s rapturously received Yerma, returns to New York with a contemporary rewrite of Euripides’ tragedy, starring Emmy and Golden Globe nominee Rose Byrne (Damages, Bridesmaids, You Can’t Take It with You) in the title role and two-time Emmy winner and Tony nominee Bobby Cannavale (The Lifespan of a Fact, The Hairy Ape, The Motherf**ker with the Hat) as the husband who betrays her. This critical sensation, which riveted audiences across Europe, arrives stateside for its US premiere, featuring an all-new cast including Tony and Emmy-nominated actor Dylan Baker (The Good Wife, Happiness).
