by Luis Alfaro
directed by Lisa Portes

Luis Alfaro transforms Sophocles’ Elektra into a passionate, powerful tale of the revenge cycle in gang culture. Electricidad mourns the murder of her father, an East L.A. gang king-pin, and vows revenge. In her determination, she pulls her brother, Orestes – a young man who managed to leave “the life” – back to commit the most tragic of crimes. At once violent and vibrant, Electricidad taps into the beauty, color and ruthlessness of this abandoned desert barrio.
