Theater presents Earthrock of Argos
The Transylvania Theater Program presented the premiere production of The Earthrock of Argos in late February and early March in the Lucille C. Little Theater. The play, based on The Oresteia by Aeschylus, was rewritten by drama professor Tim Soulis. Addressing themes of social responsibility, identity, and the humane treatment of others, it tells the story of the brutal murder of Agamemnon by his wife Clytemnestra, and the effort by their children Orestes and Electra to avenge his slaughter. In this scene, first-year student Elizabeth Guy portrays Iphiginia, daughter of King Agamemnon and Queen Clytemnestra, who is sacrificed to ensure Argos’ victory in the Trojan War.
