Oedipus has already put out his own eyes. The sons of this once great king have grown now and battle each other for territory and power. The prophets see doom. Welcome to the bloody realm of Synapse’s latest production, THE PHOENICIAN WOMEN.

 

The company puts a modern edge on Euripides’ tragedy with a multi-media presentation that is both edgy and daring, but respectful of the classical source material. Employing ancient standards, like the omnipresent Chorus, here lending vocals and movement, and blending them with modern dress and visual technology, director David Travis has blended the disparate eras almost seamlessly. The result is articulate and viable drama that the audience can understand and relate to.

 

Synapse Productions has always presented plays that are classic with an edge. THE PHOENICIAN WOMEN is no exception. Enjoy.
