Actors, directors, and audiences are fascinated by these powerful women's roles. Discussing key scenes, their interactions with others – Creon, Cassandra, Helen, Jason, Orestes, Clytemnestra and female choruses – we compare iconic representations, and explore the enduring timeliness and timelessness of these plays.
