Newfie Electra

April 25 @ 8:00 am - May 4 @ 5:00 pm


Written by and starring Allison Basha

Directed by Rae Smith

Newfie Electra is a modern day adaptation of a classic, Electra, by Sophocles. We are in a small out port fishing village in Newfoundland. The main character, Tanya, is grieving the death of her fadder at the hand of her mudder. She spends day in and day out submerged at the fish plant plotting next step. She wants revenge. Between jigs and the reels, we explore the storytelling of this wacky character and what its like to live in her shoes. Will she honour her fadder and avenge his death? Only time will tell.
