By Sophocles
Directed by Walter Schoen

“... a play that scoops more or less everyone up in its savage embrace.” – The New York Times

In a story that is as contemporary as it is classical, this famed Sophoclean tragedy explores the calamity produced by placing a headstrong young woman against an autocratic political tyrant. The story may be straightforward and simple, but the themes of power, family love, and defiance are certainly complex.
