Anne Washburn's new translation/adaptation of Euripides' classic Greek tragedy follows royal siblings Electra and Orestes as they await the judgment of the citizens and gods for the murder of their mother in the aftermath of the Trojan War. The production will also feature a chorus of women's voices singing original music composed by Obie Award winner James Sugg.
