Houston Baptist University English Professor, Louis A. Markos, tells us about the ancient Greek tragedy, Oresteia by Aeschylus, which will be performed by Athens-based company, The Theatrical Scheme, tomorrow night!
Mother murders Father for having sacrificed their Daughter. Son kills Mother in revenge for Father's assassination. Son suffers the torments of the Furies. You could call the trilogy, The Oresteia, the original dysfunctional family drama. Professor Louis A. Markos edited the English translation, which will be used by Director Leonidas Loizides' company, The Theatrical Scheme. Professor Markos spoke with KUHF's Eric Ladau.
