The Oresteia, the tale of the Fall of the House of Atreus, is brought to stunning new life by the Teen Repertory Company at Oddfellows. Tragedy unfolds as Agamemnon returns home after 10 years of fighting in the Trojan War. A hero of the war, he is reviled at home for sacrificing his daughter to the gods to obtain a favorable outcome in the war and is murdered by his wife Clytemnestra. His son Orestes is then charged with the task of avenging his death - by the murder of his mother. A tale of vengeance, pride, lust, hubris, and divine intervention, The Oresteia towers as the seminal work outlining the human desire for a world of justice. Performed in two parts and utilizing multi-media, The Oresteia will be like no other play you will see this year.
