by Jean Racine
in a new translation by Rob Melrose
directed by Ariel Craft
April 20-May 21
Cutting Ball’s Associate Artistic Director Ariel Craft directs this refreshing new take on Jean Racine’s Phèdre, the reigning champion of salacious and scandalous familial dysfunction with roots on ancient Greek tragedy.
About the play: Secret desires unleashed, ruinous deceits perpetrated, a once noble family destroyed…isn’t it astonishing what loneliness can do to a person? Once a devoted wife and a model mother, Phèdre’s resolve swiftly cracks as her attraction to her maturing stepson becomes inescapable and all-enveloping.
