Iphigenia at Aulis
A nation on the brink of war; a family torn apart; an unspeakable act of violence: this ancient Greek tragedy resonates with the immediacy of a Google newsfeed. Trapped with the Greek troops on the shores of Aulis, Agamemnon faces an impossible choice: sacrifice his own daughter, Iphigenia, to appease the gods, or remain beached. In desperation he summons wife and daughter for a wedding. When the truth is revealed, mother and lover fight to save Iphigenia from her father, the insatiable Greek army, and herself.
