“Phèdre” premieres at Tulsa’s Circle Cinema on Saturday

Nicholas Hytner’s production of “Phèdre” by Jean Racine, in a version by Ted Hughes, will convene at 8 p.m. Saturday, July 25 at Circle Cinema, 12 S. Lewis, Tulsa.
Helen Mirren leads a brilliant cast that includes Margaret Tyzack and Dominic Cooper (“The History Boys”).
“Phèdre” is about a woman named Phèdre who is consumed by an uncontrollable passion for her young stepson and believing Theseus, her absent husband, to be dead, confesses her darkest desires and enters the world of nightmare. When Theseus returns alive and well, Phèdre, fearing exposure, accuses her stepson of rape. The result is powerful drama.
