Come experience a Greek tragedy with laughs!
All of Orestes is a three-act look at Orestes and his descent into matricidal madness. A modern adaptation of nearly all the Greek tragedies that feature Orestes (Aeschylus’ Oresteia, Sophocles’ Elektra, and Euripides’ Elektra,Orestes, Andromache and Iphigenia in Tauris).
Orestes returns to Argos ten years after his mother kills his father to enact murderous revenge with the help of his sister Elektra. Hunted by the Furies, he finally abandons his flight and stands trial under a new system of justice.

More About Lake Forest College
Founded in 1857 as Lake Forest University, a group of Chicago Presbyterians set out to establish a college and a community at a midpoint between Evanston and Waukegan. The college became Lake Forest College in 1858. During the Civil War years, instruction ceased, at the college and resumed in 1876 thanks to Mary E. Smith Farwell, who wanted her daughter, Anna, to stay close to home to attend college and launched Lake Forest College.
In the 1990s, enrollment dipped below 1,000, but in the last decade it has remained at more than 1,200 students representing 47 states and 71 countries. The college has 30 majors.
Just this year, the college opened a new 68,000-square-foot recreation, sports and fitness center.
