Ancient - Redux

In keeping with the tradition of the Greek theater, BU students performed a 90-minute production of “Iphigenia and Other Daughters” outdoors in the Fine Arts Quadrangle. Violence, revenge, justice, forgiveness, memory and sibling rivalry were explored through a succession of monologues and dialogue between characters. The play is a compilation of the classic Greek tragedies “Iphigenia at Aulis,” “Electra” and “Iphigenia in Tauris” as retold by play write Ellen McLaughlin. Jane Duncan, director and BU interim instructor of theatre, directed the March 21-25 performance, which was also the final one for seniors Lynda Nora Durand and Rosanna Hurt.
