Will Eno’s TRAGEDY: A TRAGEDY

Boston University College of Fine Arts School of Theatre presents TRAGEDY: A TRAGEDY by Will Eno Directed by Alex Schneps The sun has set over the neighborhoods, government buildings, and American backyards everywhere. A news team is on the way. Their report: someone left the lawn sprinklers on; someone's horse is on the loose; a seashell is lying in the grass; dogs run by. The Governor appeals for calm. Everyone doesn't know if the sun, once down, will ever rise again. But there is a witness, and the witness will speak. Free Admission!

AGAMEMNON: DAWN TO DUSK

AGAMEMNON: DAWN TO DUSK

Boston University College of Fine Arts School of Theatre presents AGAMEMNON By Aeschylus Adapted by John Barton and Kenneth Cavander, as found in The Greeks Directed by Adam Kassim Ten years ago, Agamemnon sacrificed his daughter to win the Gods’ favor and turn the tide of war. Now, he returns home a victorious hero, willfully blind to the damage he has caused and the retribution that awaits. Agamemnon: Dawn to Dusk is a site-specific, visceral exploration of Aeschylus’ all-too-relevant play—a warning to our community of the damaging effects of hubris on the political landscape. Experience the play as it would have been performed in antiquity - at sunrise. Free Admission!
