Agamemnon

February 16th-27th, 2011

Written by: Aeschylus

Directed and Designed by: Barry Carvin

Show times: Wednesday through Saturday performances at 8pm and Sunday matinees at 2pm

Description: War, infidelity, murder, paternal filicide, lust, and insanity, are all packed into this Classical Greek tragedy that is considered to be the grandest and most theatrical of all ancient Greek plays.  As a part of the only extent Greek trilogy, Aeschlus seems to be recording the tortured begginnings of justice.  But what we see in Agamemnon is still the ancient resonances of original violence and primal revenge with a trail of blood that extends from lond before the story begins all the way to today.
