"All of Orestes" performed at Lake Forest College.

Directed and created by Sean Graney.

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.
