Give the dead their due!
The war is over, but the dead go unburied. Who's using who - and for what purpose - when the grieving wives of mothers of Argos petiion Theseus, newly-crowned King of Athens, to intervene on their behalf? Chicago playwright Jennifer L. Mickelson explores the human cost associated with the rituals of war in a sharp new adaptation insprired by the rebel Greek dramatist Euripides' original text, The Suppliant Women.
