The Greeks- The Murders

Greeks web2Three plays by Euripides, Aeschylus & Sophocles
Translated by John Barton and Kenneth Cavander

"Sin leads to sorrow -- And sorrow leads to sin." In this rare presentation of three stories of the House of Atreus, the strength and love of family are tested by temptations of power, honor, and revenge. The cry for war to rescue Helen from Troy traps Agamemnon, his wife, and children in a spinning wheel of destruction, where horrifying choices are made in the name of "Justice" and consequences reverberate through generations. With boldness and ingenuity, playwrights John Barton and Kenneth Cavander have combined three of the most celebrated plays of the greatest Ancient Greek tragedians in a fresh, electric new translation. The result is a searing look at timeless facets of human nature that speaks directly to even the most contemporary of audiences.
