American Theatre of Actors presents Euripides' tale of human sacrifice in a family setting. The title character of Iphigenia in Tauris is required to sacrifice all foreigners who enter the kingdom. What will she do when her brother and brother-in-law--searching for a magic idol--are found in her temple?
Featured as Iphigenia is Morgan Nevins, with Jason Reznikoff as her brother, Orestes. Others in the cast are Samantha Cole, Dennis Demitry, Quincy Ellis, Adam Griffith, Leslie Kelly, Claire Nasuti, Michael Swartz, Gargi Shinde, and
Nikole Williams. The production is directed by Jeff Dailey.
Written in the early years of the 5th Century BC, Iphigenia in Tauris raises issues still current today about religion, family, and murder.
