Grecian King Poised For Battle In WCC’s ‘Agamemnon’ Play
The devastation of the Trojan War will leave a bloody trail in Kaneohe, starting at 8 p.m. Friday with Agamemnon on the Paliku Theatre stage.
Taurie Kinoshita directs Agamemnon, based off of Steven Berkoff’s adaptation of Aeschylus’ original work. The play follows the Grecian king and his cursed blood-line, the House of Atreus, as he survives the brutal Trojan War and returns home to Clytemnestra, his very discontented wife.
The 75-minute production, starring Windward Community College’s Theatre 260 students, runs Feb. 27-March 1 and March 5-8. Showtime is 8 p.m. Thursdays through Saturdays, and 4 p.m. Sundays.
Each show begins with an introduction to the mythology and history behind Agamemnon and the Trojan War.
A post-show chat with the cast is planned after the Feb. 28 performance.
Tickets cost $10-$15 on etickethawaii.com or at 235-7310, but the play is not recommended for those under age 17 because of adult language, situations and themes.
