Other Daughters

For mature audiences.

"The world will never forgive us if we do not make
sense of it.”

McLaughlin’s modern adaptation of the legend of Agamemnon and the aftermath of the Trojan War offers a bold, provocative feminist perspective on a story of lust, fury, sacrifice and rebellion. The “good girl” of the bloodiest family in Greek legend, Iphigenia is sent in a time of suffering and war as a sacrifice to appease the gods. She is saved at the eleventh hour, but by then her family has spiraled into vengeful obsession and self-destruction, leaving her to seek her own path from the wreckage.
