freely adapted by Edward Mast
from Aeschylus’ ORESTEIA
You are invited to watch and listen to an old story newly told. Adapted from Aeschylus’ dramatic trilogy of Orestes and the House of Atreus, CRY FURY reenacts the cycle of murder, vengeance and punishment that falls on the victorious Greeks when they return from destroying the city of Troy. This new adaptation is informed by our contemporary world of foreign wars, falling dictatorships, revolution and the political control of memory.
When a crime of murder is avenged, who will punish the avenger? When walls are toppled and masters are deposed, will there be freedom or only a new set of masters?
CRY FURY will be a spoken oratorio in an intimate setting, directed by Robert Leigh and featuring Carmel Baird, Vince Balestri, Erwin Galand, Teresa Kennedy and Meg Savlov. The performance will last about two hours with one intermission. Admission is free but seating is extremely limited, so please reserve seats.
Three performances only. Only a small number of people will get to see this play. Make your reservation now.
