Ian Rickson (Translations) directs Kate Tempest's powerful new version of the Greek legend, with a cast including Lesley Sharp.

In a cave on a desolate island lives Philoctetes: once a wartime hero, now a wounded outcast.

Stranded for ten years, he sees a chance of escape when a young solider appears with tales of Philoctetes’ past glories.

But with his hope comes suspicion and, as an old enemy emerges, he is faced with an even greater temptation: revenge.
