  • Description

    Adapted from Aeschylus’ The Oresteia
    By John Lewin
    Directed by Yanci Bukovec

    John Lewin’s acclaimed adaptation of the only surviving Greek tragic trilogy brings alive a royal family’s journey through betrayal, murder and revenge. The worldview changes for some of the most powerfully depicted characters in western drama as they progress from their primal motives for an eye-for-an-eye vengeance to a judicial system of law and order.

    “Condensing the ‘Orestiad's’ three plays into a single evening gives us ample opportunity to ponder the divided nature of mankind, where ‘One chamber of the human heart/Holds pride and strength within,/The next, a mad, sick animal/And the wall between is thin.’” –Los Angeles Times
