IPHIGENIA IN AULIS Retold at Alchemical Studios
Spirit Fox Productions presents its inaugural production of the Euripedes tragedy, Iphigenia at Aulis, at Alchemical Laboratory Theatre for two performances only this August.
Directed by Ryan Ortega, this classic Greek tragedy is retold through a New York lens. Iphigenia at Aulis is the pre-war tale of the sacrifice and surrounding controversy of Iphigenia, Princess and daughter of Agamemnon and Clytemnestra, sparking a war and series of events that have ever-defined Greek literature.
The cast boasts a talented group of seasoned actors. Leading the cast are Ariel Francoeur as Clytemnestra, Liz Livingston as Iphigenia, and Tyler Linke as Agamemnon, with John Kilberg, Walker Snow Harrison, Karen Thorla, Kim Hicks, Lauren Cusker and Emily Coleman rounding out the cast. Coleman doubles as the Assistant Director and Vocal Coach, with John-Ross Winter completing the creative team as Costume Designer.
