Originally produced by the National Theatre of Great Britain starring Diana Rigg, this ingenious transposition of Racine's Phaedra to 19th century Raj India was equally acclaimed in New York City at CSC Repertory.
In Theatre Works 1973-1985.
"Absolutely enthralling.... The old Greek tragedy of Phaedra ... works extraordinarily well in the steamy landscape of an India seen through the narrow eye slits of Victorian society. The story seen through this arresting perspective with the ancient and vengeful Gods of India taking over from the Greek furies takes on a special vibrancy. Do not miss this eroticism Anglo Indian style." - New York Post
