Iphigenia and Other Daughters

The women of Greek tragedy speak out: Clytemnestra, who kills her husband for using her favorite daughter, Iphigenia, as a human sacrifice. Iphigenia, who was killed so that the gods would make the wind blow. Electra, who is determined to avenge her father’s murder. Chrysothemis, nobody’s favorite, who somehow keeps everything going. McLaughlin is well-known for her adaptation of Greek drama, including The Trojan Women and Ajax in Iraq. Directed by Amber Bjork, who last worked with Theatre Unbound on Silkworms.

Run time: 1 hour 14 minutes. No intermission.
