An electrifying re-imagining of the ultimate love triangle. Mother. Father. Son.
Pecho Mama’s radical reinvention of the myth is a powerhouse production for our times, telling Jocasta’s story, and marrying London’s domestic grit with searing live Electronica.
Jo is a playwright struggling with a commission deadline and the threat of an emergency hysterectomy. Over 24 mind-bending hours, she feverishly writes her own Oedipus, the most explosive of Greek myths, and exorcises her long-buried grief for the child that didn’t live.
Oedipus Electronica takes us to the playground of the female psyche, in all its feral, carnal and creative glory. Mella Faye (who performs, writes and directs) has created a multi-layered powerhouse of a theatre show, driven by a muscular live band on stage.
It’s a spectacle that is fearless, uncompromising and unlike anything else you’ve seen on the stage.
