RITES AND SACRIFICES by Idle Muse Theatre Company

RITES AND SACRIFICES
By Jennifer L. Mickelson
Directed by Evan Jackson
http://idlemuse.org/

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 petition 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 inspired by the rebel Greek dramatist Euripides' original text, THE SUPPLIANT WOMEN.

Idle Muse is going a bit site-specific for their Greek-adapted RITES AND SACRIFICES, taking advantage of Collaboraction's uniquely-shaped Pentagon Theatre, recalling a classical, in-the-round style.

    RITES AND SACRIFICES is a well-performed and engaging show. I really enjoy small productions like this. I feel the actors and artistic team are more invested in the production. It really showed this afternoon. Try and see this show and support the incredible achievements smaller theater companies like Idle Muse are doing.
