Tonight: A Greek Tragedy
Posted by novoscene on October 8, 2009
Do you enjoy a good story? There are few that can compete with the ancient Greek tragedies.
Tonight, the Round Belly Theatre Company presents Orestia: Before the Furies, adapted from Aeschylus’ classic Greek trilogy. The modernized tale depicts the brutal and tragic ramifications of a blood curse on the House of Atreus. The story of a woman’s murder of her husband, and their children’s desperate revenge explores the complex web of vengeance and personal redemption that plagues a prominent house in an age of war, poverty and a public teetering on the brink of cultural apocalypse.
