Lodged in an unsatisfying
marriage, still in her sexual prime, Phaedra indulges in a secret
obsession for a younger man. Adding fuel to the fire, the object
of her desire also happens to be her husband's son. It’s a
story about what happens when passion is given free rein over reason,
an ardent and tabloid-worthy tragedy of 20th century suburbia. Obie
Award Winner Adam Bock returns to Shotgun Players with a riveting
modern adaptation of Racine's classic tale.
Don't be mean.
Don't write words you wouldn't say in front
of your grandma or my daughters.
Don't go promoting outside causes.
Sound fair? Good. Now grab
that keyboard and break it down.
