SUMMARY

Birmingham’s Kindle Theatre plunder the city’s native heavy metal sound to create a ballsy gig for you to get sweaty to.

Told through the eyes of Clytemnestra’s band of Furies, this is the ultimate tale of envy, rage and revenge.

The Furies smashes together rock, metal and soul in a drastic retelling of the ancient myth of Clytemnestra. Witness a woman’s loss, betrayal and bloody revenge in a heart-stopping cacophony of original music, voicescapes and stark imagery.

"The power of these rock-chick Furies is in the way they use their voices and bodies as weapons… They are a force of nature."
