LOVE and WAR

Oct 30 through Nov 2
Pius Black Box Theater

Award winning playwright Ellen McLaughlin has specialized in highly poetic yet decidedly modern adaptations of classic Greek plays. Pius has chosen McLaughlin’s powerful versions of THE TROJAN WOMEN and ELECTRA to explore the nature of love, war, pride and revenge. Both plays will be presented at each performance.

THE TROJAN WOMEN
In the wake of their devastating defeat, the women of Troy, all now widows, wait on the beach below the ravaged city to be claimed by their Greek conquerors as slaves and concubines. Though the war is over, exile and degradation lie ahead and the fates of these women, including Queen Hecuba, her daughter Cassandra, the doomed, mad prophetess, and her daughter-in-law Andromache, widow of the great Hector, are still in the balance.

ELECTRA
Electra follows the children of Clytemnestra and Agamemnon, siblings who are both players in the family tragedy and victims of it. The cycle of blood and vengeance seems inescapable until the final reunion of a lost sister and brother brings the bloody family saga to its mystical and unlikely end.
