It's Virgie's eighty-fourth birthday and she is bucking convention.

But, always more committed as an artist than a mother, Virgie has not reckoned on her family and friends' determination to thwart her plans.

A moving black comedy that reimagines the meaning of family, April De Angelis' <i>After Electra</i> premiered at the Theatre Royal Plymouth, in April 2015 before transferring to the Tricycle Theatre, London.
