WHAT IS IT ABOUT?

The Pearl Theatre continues their mission of becoming America's premiere classical theatre company, by producing two legendary shows in a professional rotating repertory. The Way of the World by William Congreve, explores the wit and cynicism of the Restoration, in what is considered as the supreme achievement of the movement. Every relationship in the play has an illicit aura or history or implication, and each one in some way involves sex and money, such is "the way of the world" The Oresteia by Aeschylus, translated by Peter Meineck is both a savage myth and a rite of passage unto itself. This sweeping account, takes us from darkness to light, from vengeance to justice, from vendetta to forgiveness and from barbarism to civilization.
