WOOSTER, Ohio — The Department of Theatre and Dance at The College of Wooster will present Ellen McLaughlin’s “Iphigenia and Other Daughters,” Oct. 28-30 in Freedlander Theatre (329 E. University
St.). Tickets for the performances, which begin at 8:15 p.m. each evening, are $9 for general admission, $6 for students and senior citizens. College of Wooster students are admitted free of charge.
Directed by Season Ellison, visiting assistant professor of theatre at Wooster, “Iphigenia and Other Daughters” is a contemporary retelling of three Greek dramas: “Iphigenia at Tauris” and “Iphigenia at Aulis” by Euripides, and “Electra” by Sophocles. McLaughlin’s adaptation focuses on the stories of the women of the House of Atreus and quietly and poetically parallels these mythological tales with present-day women’s experiences in war.
The set design is by Dale Seeds, professor of theatre and dance, with lighting design by Jody Tidwell (technical director), costume design by Charlene Gross, and sound design by sophomore Darius Dixon. Katherine Burke, a visiting artist, is the vocal coach, and senior Lindsay Phillips is assistant director. The ensemble cast features juniors Bridget Hillyer and Bronwyn Schlaefer;
sophomores Malcolm Campbell-Taylor, Mary Kate Donnelly, Thomas Sanchez II, and Annie Woller; and first-year students Alex Dereix, Kevin Glass, Elli Lazarus, Kenneth Perry, and Matthew Simpson.
The Freedlander Theatre Box Office opens on Oct. 20 with hours from 12-2 p.m. and 4-6 p.m. Monday through Friday, and until 7:45 p.m. on the nights of the performance. The house opens for seating at 7:45 p.m. Late seating is not available for this production. “Iphigenia and Other Daughters” contains some sexual content and violent imagery, and is suggested for adult audiences.
