By Martin Crimp, after Sophocles' Trachiniae

"Cruel and Tender" by Martin Crimp is a contemporary adaptation of the ancient Greek tragedy Sophocles' Trachiniae, set in the context of today's political climate. In Crimp's adaptation, the character Deianeira from Sophocles becomes Amelia, the wife of a general. Amelia, who resides in a temporary house near an international airport, receives information about her husband's military activities and devises a plan to bring him back home. Her love for him is overshadowed by doubt and anger when she learns that her high-ranking husband initiated a military attack on a strategic city not only for political reasons but also for personal ones.
