Hippolytus is a story by the ancient Greek writer Euripides.
"Phaedra is consumed with an insatiable lust for her stepson Hippolytus. Aphrodite, Goddess of Love and Lust, is furious that Hippolytus will not worship her. She wreaks bloody retribution on him, destroying everything and everyone around him. A dark, tense piece about passion, loyalty and vengeance"
