Orestes: A Tragic Romp
Nominated for four Helen Hayes Awards

Playwright: Anne Washburn, transdapted from Euripides. Composer/Music Director: James Sugg. Movement Director: Patty Gallagher. Sets: Daniel Conway. Costumes: Jessica Ford. Lighting: Tyler Micoleau. Dramaturg: Michele Osherow.

Anne Washburn wrote a stark, smart, intense script... utterly modern while still being amazingly faithful to the original Euripides. Our cast was fiercely committed, led by Holly Twyford’s stunning Electra. The design was utterly engaging and constantly shifting in tone, anergy and dynamic.
“...ebullient, sharp-tongued, constantly surprising and delightful. It is in the hands of masters...among them, the gifted director, Aaron Posner.”
