WHAT IS IT ABOUT?

Samson Agonistes is a rarely performed drama, which contains poetry of grandeur and brilliance not seen since Shakespeare. Penned in 1691 and based on the biblical story of Samson, the play follows the blinded hero as he confronts his aged father Manoa, his treacherous wife Dalila, and the heartless giant of Harapha of Gath. Each encounter represents a step along the way to Samson's final act of defiance and redemption.
