The Trojan War has finally ended, but the battle isn't over for Queen Clytemnestra. Years after the sacrifice of her young daughter, it's time to face her grief, her ghosts, and her husband. Her other daughter Electra…is also there. An award-winning play for a work in heightened language, using classical and modern text, The House of Clytemnestra highlights our daily performances and the roles women must play with humor and heartbreak; showing our love and masking our grief, or is it the other way around? Either way, the House always wins.

The cast will feature Alexander Bourne, Baldur Dagbjartsson, Danica Jensen, Julianna Mitchell, Lindsey Newton, Zachary Papatheodorou, and Thea Throndson.
