Main Street Players Presents IPHIGENIA IN AULIS, The Last Of The Surviving Works Of The Playwright Euripides.
Where does political ambition have limits and how far can man go to reach it? Even sacrifice a daughter? Are men worthy of reflection and reasoned judgment, or are they prisoners of their destiny? Ifigenia in Aulis is a work that questions the limits of ambitions and the meaning of who is really a hero.
The Greeks have gathered their army in the port of Aulis in a battle against Troy, but the ships cannot set sail unless King Agamemnon, commander of the army, sacrifices his eldest daughter Ifigenia to the goddess Artemis. Ifigenia is taken to the port under the false pretense she is to marry decorated fighter Achilles, but the truth will soon be revealed.
Ifigenia in Aulis runs December 1st - December 17th with performances Fridays and Saturdays at 8 pm and Sundays at 2 pm. Tickets are $30 for adults and $25 for students, seniors, and military personnel. Theatre League members $20 with i.d. at the door only. Use the promotion code EARLY BIRD to get a discount.
