Rewarding, Ambitious, Great writing

See it if you wish more of the classics were performed. A mega-arc of humanity’s attempt to control fate reduced to illusion & misguided vanity.

Don't see it if you don’t like poetry as scripts, the extremity of Greek drama, or theater that happens in attics and lofts. Read more

Ambitious, Good but uneven acting, Interesting staging, Repetitious

See it if Good to see real classics again. Some terrific acting (some not so). But the staging was delightfully funky, in the loft of an old church.

Don't see it if Like theatre fast-paced, light and fluffy, then stay home and watch sitcoms. If the subjugation of women is not your theme ...ditto.

Amateur, Relevant, Resonant, Thought-provoking, Slow

See it if you like amateur theater & don't mind varying levels of acting. Some scenes were moving. Hecuba & Poseidon/Menelaus largely carried the show

Don't see it if you expect production values higher than your average school/church/youth group can afford. The majority of the actors felt inexperienced. Read more
