Electra in a One-Piece

a new play by Isaac Oliver
directed by David Ruttura

with Chris Bannow, Amanda Scot Ellis, Melanie Hopkins, Ian McWethy, Austin Mitchell, Matt Park with Michael Brusasco and Erika Rolfsrud

synopsis:

A brutally funny modern tragedy, Electra in a One-Piece re-imagines the bloody Greek tale for our digital era. When Elle discovers that her mother has murdered her father and is burying him in the backyard, she sends for help the only way she knows how: the internet. Armed only with a video camera, she videotapes the gruesome scene and posts it on YouTube to alert her brother stationed in Iraq, inadvertently becoming an overnight YouTube sensation. Urged on by the chatter of anonymous commenters clamoring for more, Elle and her family saturate the internet with videos, stirring controversy and piquing the interest of a savvy television producer with plans for a camera-ready bloodbath.
