A darkly quirky adaptation of a classic.

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 her next step. She wants revenge. Between jigs and the reels, we explore the storytelling of this wacky character and what it’s like to live in her shoes. Will she honour her Fadder and avenge his death? Only time will tell.

Drama is a weird thing – we applaud something that happened irrevocably.—Arkady
