Desire Under the Elms
A father whose cruelty drives his sons into despairful revenge, his first two wives into the grave, and a third wife into forbidden seduction. The plays classical catharsis purges and transforms into forgiveness and the uplifting power of love.
Desire based on Euripides play Hippolytus, and the Greek myth Phaedra, exquisitely explores the tragic excesses of greed and passion, offering an eternal lesson.
Play Review: Desire Under the Elms an emotional, visceral ride. Glendale News Press.
