What is this Greek tragedy all about?
A summary from Wikipedia:
"Electra or Elektra (Ancient Greek: Ἠλέκτρα, Ēlektra) is a Greek tragedy by Sophocles. Its date is not known, but various stylistic similarities with the Philoctetes (409 BC) and the Oedipus at Colonus (401 BC) lead scholars to suppose that it was written towards the end of Sophocles' career.
Set in the city of Argos a few years after the Trojan war, it is based around the character of Electra, and the vengeance that she and her brother Orestes take on their mother Clytemnestra and step father Aegisthus for the murder of their father, Agamemnon."

I never felt like I was watching a high school play, this was intense, riveting, and engaging. I forgot to take pictures a few times because your acting drew me in and I was captivated by the intensity and drama. If you enjoy high school drama, watching children excel, and are looking for something to do this weekend...look no further.
