Iphigenia Theater Outing with Dr. Rose Malague

What:

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!

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:

rmalague@sas.upenn.edu

 

Hoping you might join us! And if you can’t look for further opportunities.

 

All best from your faculty fellow,

 

Rose Malague
