SEE ELLEN'S WORK Iphigenia and Other Daughters at the University Of Chicago
Adapted by Ellen Mclaughlin from the plays Iphigenia in Aulis and Iphigenia in Tauris by Euripides and from the play Electra by Sophocles.
This three-play cycle is a modern retelling of the fall of the House of Atreus. It 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.
