Professor Rush Rehm is taking his show Clytemnestra: Tangled Justice by Stanford Repertory Theater (SRT) on the road!  Prof. Rehm will travel to Wesleyan University for a performance on Monday, February 22, at 4:30pm (Ring Family Performing Arts Hall, CFA).  This will be followed by performances in Greece (Napflion, on March 17, 8:00pm, at the Trianon Theater; Athens, on March 21, 8:00pm, at the Hellenic-American Union) in March 2016.

Clytemnestra: Tangled Justice is an intense, 40-minute one woman show with Courtney Walsh.  It features Michael Keck's dynamic score as it focuses on the dramatic figure of Clytemnestra in Aeschylus' Oresteia.  The character dazzles us with her verbal power and theatrical daring, raising questions about political justice, gender parity, sexual jealousy, blood loyalty, and the compulsions of war.

Following the performance, a discussion with Walsh and translator/director Rush Rehm invites the audience to engage with this powerful character and the intractable issues she raises.

Alumni and friends in either location: we do hope that you will attend!
