Areaman Productions recently shot & edited video of Rough Magic's production of Phaedra, performed at the Project Arts Theatre in Dublin. Lynne Parker directed this contemporary take on the timeless story of Phaedra's dark obsession with her stepson. The production is underpinned by a dynamic collaboration between writer Hilary Fannin and composer/musician Ellen Cranitch.
Through Fannin’s scathing humour, Rough Magic’s powerful production explores the extremities of passion, and the psychology of a doomed family in its attempts to outwit fate. The music is performed live by an ensemble of Ireland’s leading musicians, under the inspired direction of Ellen Cranitch.
