"Home Siege Home" at the Ford


Home Siege Home - A disarmingly funny but ultimately heartbreaking trilogy of new plays based on Aeschylus' Oresteia. Devised by The Ghost Road Company, one of California's most ambitious experimental, multimedia theater ensembles, the three plays - Clytemnestra, Elektra and Orestes - use original music and songs, innovative text and arresting visual imagery to explore the intimate lives of one ancient and powerful family through our contemporary eyes.
