Synopses & Reviews
Peter Burian and Brian Swann recreate Euripides' The Phoenician Women which explores, with all its deeply disturbing ironies, the fateful history of the House of Laios following the tragic fall of Oedipus, King of Thebes. Their lively translation of this controversial play reveals the cohesion and taut organization of a complex dramatic work.
