The Teen Repertory Company at Oddfellows Playhouse in Middletown is taking on two epic tragedies by Euripides this spring - Iphigenia at Aulis and The Trojan Women. It promises to be one exciting evening of dramatic theater.
The Greeks, created in 1979 for the Royal Shakespeare Company by director John Barton and playwright/translator Kenneth Cavander, will be performed at Oddfellows Playhouse on May 19 - 21 and 27 -28 at 7 pm. Tickets are available at www.oddfellows.org
This is one of the most ambitious projects which the Teen Repertory Company - made up of 21 actors between the ages of 14 and 20 - has taken on in recent years. The two hour show starts with the Greek fleet assembling at Aulis to rescue Helen from Troy, only to be stymied when the Greek general Agamemnon is required by the Goddess Artemis to sacrifice his eldest daughter Iphigenia if the fleet wants to get the wind to set sail. The second half (The Trojan Women) takes place ten years later, when Troy has been ravaged.
