About the Show Less...

Orestes explores the tragedy of human relationships set against the backdrop of war. Read More >

As children Orestes and his sister Electra were sent far awy, banished by their own mother. Years later, the city must vote to determine their future as they stand trial for her murder. Some say the killing should be met with banishment and that the cycle of revenge must be stopped. Others want blood… At its dazzling best when confronting epic stories and emotional complexity, Shared Experience stages this brand-new telling of Euripides’ potent drama of avenging siblings.
