Sophocles' Electra/Peace

1927 saw the first tragedy/comedy double bill, with ELECTRA and PEACE performed together.

The actors’ text and translation sold to audiences was J.T. Sheppard, Sophocles: The Electra, with Aristophanes: The Peace, part 1 (Cambridge 1927).

Cast and Crew (incomplete)

  • Electra: Ronald Watkins
  • Composer: Dennis Arundell

Both [plays] were extremely good. The ‘Electra’, in particular, was far the best thing of the kind since the war.
