Euripides' delightful tale of abandonment and reconciliation. Creusa, daughter of the King of Athens, searches for her abandoned son, the result of an illicit liaison with Apollo. Accompanied by a group of female servants who are all too ready to rant and stamp their feet in protest at the injustices served upon her, she seeks advice from the oracle, only to be cheated once again.
