Cal Shakes presents the West Coast premiere of The Oresteia by Ellen McLaughlin, directed by Eric Ting. Freely adapted from the Ancient Greek plays of Aeschylus comes this chronicle of Agamemnon, Clytemnestra and their children—Iphigenia, Electra and Orestes—and the tragic tale of the fall of the House of Atreus. Called “heart-stopping” by The Washington Post, this is a story of family, war, power and sacrifice, and our collective responsibility to disrupt the tragedies amongst us with mercy, compassion and grace.
