Iphigenia in Aulis by Euripides
Translated by Nicholas Rudall
Directed by Charles Newell
Co-presented by Court Theatre

As the Greek army lies stagnant on the silent shores of Aulis, King Agamemnon is faced with a harrowing decision. In return for the winds that would carry his army to victory over Troy, the goddess Artemis has demanded the impossible: the sacrifice of the king's own daughter, Iphigenia.
