Gre­cian King Poised For Battle In WCC’s ‘Agamem­non’ Play

MidWeek Islander (Windward Oahu) - - Windward Oahu Islander -

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 blood­line, 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.

For more in­for­ma­tion, call Ki­noshita at 779-3456 or email her at tau­rie@hawaii.edu.
