The-Penny-Seats-Elektra

Penny Seats Theatre Company debuts Sophocles’ Elektra, with an all-new cast in a new venue- the outdoor brick promenade at West Park. Translated by Canadian poet and former U of M professor Anne Carson, Elektra will be the Penny Seats’ first presentation of a new translation of a classical work. Set after the Trojan War, in the city of Argos, plots to take down her mother and stepfather. With the help of her brother, Orestes, will avenge her father’s death. Oft compared to the Oedipus Complex, the Elektra Complex is known in Neo-Freudian circles as a girl’s inherent competition with her mother for her father’s love. Directed by Russ Schwartz with local talent Emily Caffrey starring as Elektra.

Opens Thursday, July 10, runs through Saturday, July 26. 7pm, Thursday-Saturday evenings. $10. West Park, 215 Chapin St. 734-926-5346. pennyseats.wordpress.com
