Bloody Family

Co-Produced by Philip McKee + Tanja Jacobs
and The Theatre Centre

Bloody Family is the story of a family ripped apart by idealism.
A father kills his daughter for honour.
A wife kills her husband for revenge.
A son kills his mother for justice.

Bloody Family is a personal and volatile adaptation of the ancient Greek tragedy The Oresteia.  It is an experimental work that contrasts compassion with necessity, and examines the birth and failure of Justice.

Bloody Family has been in development at The Theatre Centre since 2012. It is created by Tanja Jacobs and Philip McKee with collaborators Rose Plotek and Ishan Davé. Also featuring Norah Sadava, with design by Ken Mackenzie and music by James Bunton,
