"Elektra," "Orestes," and "Iphigeneia in Taurus," performed together as "Agamemnon's Children" at the Gate Theatre, London, in 1995, show the consequences of Agamemnon's "sacrifice" of his daughter at the start of the Trojan War.
"Euripides, the Athenian playwright who dared to question the whims of wanton gods, has always been the most intriguing of the Greek tragedians. Now, with translations aimed at the stage rather than the page, his restless intellect strikes the chord it always should have. This revivification is due in part to the translations of Kenneth McLeish, whose skill at rendering 'spoken' (rather than 'written') dialogue is masterly."--"Evening Standard"
"McLeish's spring-heeled, colloquial translation reaffirms Euripides as a thoroughly modern author."--"Observer"
