Playwright Anne Washburn (Mr. Burns, a post-electric play) and director Rachel Chavkin (Natasha, Pierre and the Great Comet of 1812) team up to re-imagine Euripides’ last play. King Agamemnon and his thousand ships are stranded on the island of Aulis waiting for a wind to bring them to the shores of Troy. To gain that wind he must sacrifice his daughter Iphigenia. Witness his terrible choice in this remarkable and rarely-seen Greek tragedy.
