50 daughters. 50 sons. And a wedding night to remember.
THE RAVAGERS is loosely based on the ancient Greek play THE SUPPLIANTS by Aeschylus. Danaus is tyrant of Argos and has 50 daughters who are set to marry their 50 Egyptian cousins. To avoid giving up power to his future sons-in-law, Danaus tells his daughters to murder their new husbands on their wedding night. All do, except for one. THE RAVAGERS explores what happens when one daughter discovers herself at the precipice between obedience and resistance. Lavender called the 2011 production, “ingenious and hauntingly evocative.”
Together is better. Get under the umbrella.
