Oresteia: This Restless House

A father's horrifying sacrifice of his daughter sets in motion a cycle of bloody revenge. Murder and madness ensue, testing the loyalties of his remaining children and propelling them to the edge of reason. The curse that has gripped the family for generations looks as if it will never end as the ghosts of the past continue to haunt and torment the survivors. The Oresteia: This Restless House is a fearless reimagining of Aeschylus' epic Greek saga and an exhilarating and contemporary take on an ancient drama that has survived two and a half thousand years.
Author Zinnie Harris (after Aeschylus)
