Overview

I blame the books they learned to read with. Daddy at the office. Mummy looking out of the window while she's washing up. I should have burnt them.

It's Virgie's eighty-fourth birthday and she is bucking convention. But, always more committed as an artist than a mother, Virgie has not reckoned on her family and friends' determination to thwart her plans.

A moving black comedy that reimagines the meaning of family, April De Angelis' After Electra premiered at the Theatre Royal Plymouth, in April 2015 before transferring to the Tricycle Theatre, London.
