Abstract: This article examines the use made in Brian Friel's play Living Quarters (1977) of Greek tragedy, and in particular of Euripides' Hippolytus (428 B.C.). The article discusses the character Sir in detail, and examines how Friel uses him to reimagine the Greek concept of fate and made it convincing in contemporary terms.
