Saving the Greeks: One Tragedy at a Time

October 24th, 25th, and 26th at 7pm

October 26th at 2pm


Aristotle, Aeschylus, and Aristophanes are rolling in their graves...with laughter! Characters once doomed by tragic fate get a chance to change their stories in Betterland, a new city with an ambitious, if tragically flawed, plan for peace. Greek Gods and classical heroes, from Zeus and Oedipus to Hera and Hercules, challenge their stories and the history of dramatic literature. This show is open to any first year student(freshman or transfer) who is new to Cal U. Come prepared to move. NO preparation is necessary.
