Anthony Barclay will play ‘Agamemnon’ in The Iphigenia Quartet at The Gate Theatre, Notting Hill
‘One tragedy. Two parts. Four explosive plays.
Agamemnon faces an impossible choice, he is a father commanded by the gods to sacrifice his daughter. In doing so, he will lose his wife, Clytemnestra and bury his child, Iphigenia. Ever present over his shoulder, the Chorus awaits Iphigenia’s fate.
The Iphigenia Quartet gives you the opportunity to experience this domestic catastrophe from the perspective of the each key player. Witness Clytemnestra grapple with the ultimate betrayal, see Iphigenia boldly accept her fate, watch Agamemnon wrestle with an impossible choice, and experience the Chorus’ powerless observation of this tragedy, unable to look away.
Watch the classic Greek story of Iphigenia at Aulis retold by four of the UK’s most exciting and radical playwrights. The production will be performed as a pair of double bills alternating throughout the run – Agamemnon & Clytemnestra and Iphigenia & Chorus, giving you the chance to see every angle.
You may be willing to die for your beliefs, but who would you kill for them?’
Anthony has enjoyed a long and successful career in theatre, television and film and last year played ‘Prince Shcherbatsky’ in Anna Karenina at the Royal Exchange Theatre and West Yorkshire Playhouse
