A timely and timeless update of the ancient Greek myth of Philomela, The Love of the Nightingale finds two sisters separated by marriage and miles until terrible circumstances reunite them. In a shocking act of retribution, the sisters exact revenge on the man who has abused them both, continuing a tragic cycle of violence that can only be interrupted by the gods. Wertenbaker combines elements of classical myth and history to create a drama that is as original as it is modern.
