The School of Theatre is proud to present The Oresteia ('Tale of Orestes'). A world premiere trilogy by Theatre chair Matthew Travisano, and inspired by the Oresteia of Aeschylus, the action is moved from Ancient Greece to the present day. This three-part epic involves nearly 100 students who will bring to life a new play that speaks directly to the world they are inheriting and are already working to change for the better. A complete Oresteia trilogy hasn't been produced in the Bay Area for nearly two decades. See one, two, or all of the plays and be part of this groundbreaking event.
As part of the production, a symposium will take place on Tuesday, April 25th at 7pm. Art to Activism to Change will feature a panel discussion about the social and political issues highlighted in the three plays. Leading figures in the arts and humanties will offer their thoughts and engage in discussion with the audience. This event is free to the public.
