Iphigenia and Other Daughters
By Ellen McLaughlin
Directed by Matt Trucano
February 21-23 at 8:00pm | February 24 at 2:00pm
Anderson Theatre

In order to go to war, Agamemnon sacrifices his daughter Iphigenia to the gods. Ten years later, his wife Clytemnestra kills him within hours of his triumphant homecoming. Another twenty years go by, and Orestes, their son, avenges his father's death by killing his mother. What does it take to disrupt the cycles of hurt and revenge that tear families and societies apart? The ancient Greeks lay awake at night attempting to answer this question, as we do today. Iphigenia and Other Daughters is a trilogy based on Euripides' Iphigenia at Aulis and Iphigenia in Tauris and Sophocles' Electra to give center stage to the women and children whose lives are hijacked by ideologies predicated on their own voicelessness and objectification. When is enough enough?
