About the Play:
Phaedra or Phèdre, written by Jean Racine, is a 5 act tragedy based on ancient Greek
mythology. Phaedra is about the tragic downfall of a noble family, and the forbidden
love, dark secrets, passion and intrigue surrounding their demise. Phaedra is written in
alexandrine verse, meaning each line has 12 syllables with major stress on the sixth
syllable. Phaedra is considered one of the masterful works of western dramatic
literature. Voltaire has called it “the masterpiece of the human mind”.
