Almeida Artistic Director Rupert Goold introduces Almeida Greeks: 'We are delighted to announce our Greek festival this summer at the Almeida: three major productions of Greek tragedy in our theatre from May to November. Inspired in form and spirit by the Greek Dionysia, we will also present a festival of other work in the theatre and off site, including responses, talks, readings and panels At the Almeida we strive to create theatre that asks questions of its audiences, of who they are and the world they live in, work that is alive and resonant. When we came to the writers of Ancient Greece we wanted to be true to their plays - staging them in full complexity, presenting their formal iconoclasm, their humour, musicality, politics, violence and unswerving drama. These writers took society's old myths and made them new: changed them, exploded them, set them loose as contemporary stories that spoke to their city. At the same time they posed big, provocative, uncomfortable questions; ones which two thousand years later, we still struggle to answer We want to follow their example. We are taking the Greeks out of the Attic.'

Before I get into where we're at with this new record, I'll give you a little background on us. Myself, my identical triplet brother Sean, and our younger brother Brendan formed A Fragile Tomorrow 11 years ago in the Hudson Valley region of New York, where we grew up. We started out like most kids who want to be in a rock band, playing shitty covers at parties and school talent shows, but eventually we realized that it wasn't just a hobby.
