Coming to the Relative Theatrics virtual stage is Aeschylus’ Agamemnon, the first tragedy in the only surviving trilogy of Ancient Greek dramatic literature. In this thought-provoking play the leader of the Greek forces during the Trojan War, Agamemnon, has returned after ten years to his palace at Argos. By his side is Cassandra, an enslaved Trojan priestess gifted with clairvoyance by Apollo, but cursed in that no one will ever believe her prophecies. Agamemnon explores the impact of war, the nature of fate, and the cost of revenge.

Presented in conjunction with Reading Greek Tragedy Online, a weekly series of scene readings and discussions presented by the Center for Hellenic Studies, the Kosmos Society, and Out of Chaos. https://chs.harvard.edu/CHS/article/display/7081

Relative Theatrics strives to present thought-provoking theatre that examines the joining qualities of the human race. We believe that theatre is a forum with the power to illuminate the binding qualities of humanity and reinforce the ideals that as a society we have values that pose as common ground and emotions that relate us to one another. Taking artistic risk, we provide a community gathering place where thoughts can be exchanged about society, culture, and the power of creativity.

The reading will take place at 7p MDT on Thursday, October 22nd.

Register for the reading via Zoom here.

Following the reading, we invite viewers to join us via video chat for a discussion led by Dr. Laura De Lozier. The performance and discussion will not be livestreamed.
A video of the reading will be viewable on the Relative Theatrics YouTube Channel the following week.
