A trio of skilled narrators brings to life three figures from Greek mythology whose fates are intertwined in tragedy. Saint's retelling of the Siege of Troy is straightforward in its plot but layered in its approach to the thoughts and feelings of the women caught up in its wake. Beth Eyre narrates as Elektra, an imperious girl full of pride in her heroic father who turns a heart full of venom on the woman who strikes him down for his misdeeds. Julie Teal's nuanced performance as Clytemnestra reveals a soul ravaged by betrayal who sacrifices all hope of happiness for the satisfaction of revenge. As the doomed prophetess Cassandra, Jane Collingwood evokes the mournful certainty of a woman who is powerless to stop the destinies she sees are about to unfold.
