Greetings to the House –
Dr. Rose Malague is running a first theatre outing for the house with residents from Riepe to see IPHIGENIA at AULIS, a less commonly performed, but superb, Greek tragedy by Euripides.
Appropriate to the play’s setting, it will be performed on the Cruiser Olympia— a ship that sits in the dock down at the Philadelphia waterfront!
Further details here:
From the website:
"A nation on the brink of war [= the Trojan War!]. A family on the edge of collapse [= Agamemnon’s family!]. An army poised to strike, but unable to sail – unless their great general sacrifices his daughter. The Philadelphia Artists’ Collective returns to the fringe aboard the historic USS Olympia to present Euripides heartbreaking tragedy of human folly."
We have a block of tickets for the performance on Thursday, September 14th at 8:00 p.m. The performance lasts 60 minutes.
We’ll plan to leave from our respective houses to travel down together, around 7:00 that evening.
Tickets will be assigned (free of charge!) on a first come, first served basis. If you would like to join us, please let me know by TUESDAY at 5 pm, by writing directly to Dr. Malague at:
Hoping you might join us! And if you can’t look for further opportunities.
All best from your faculty fellow,
