Getting ready for curtains up

Worth School

The cast of our Middle School production of Electra have been working to deliver hard what should be a fabulous show.

Productions at Worth are widely considered to be outstanding and this will be our fourth major show of the year after Les Misérables (Senior School), Blue Stockings (Drama Scholars) and Frozen (Junior School).

Electra takes to the stage in the Performing Arts Centre at Worth on 13 and 14 June. In the aftermath of the Trojan War, the kingdom of Mycenae was plagued with a series of cursed betrayals. Out of the carnage, Electra, the newly orphaned daughter of the late King, is forced into solitary exile. Performed by pupils from Years 9 and 10, this production promises to be a contemporary reimagining of Euripides’ famous play Electra.

Set in the 1950s, we see the heroine go on a heart-wrenching journey from absolute ruin to being reunited with her sister and exacting revenge on those who have wronged them. It is not, however, until the gods intervene, and the girls face the consequences of their actions, that Electra is forced to make her greatest decision of all.

Tickets are now available via our new online ticketing system here.
