50 daughters. 50 sons. And a wedding night to remember.
Loosely based on the ancient Greek play THE SUPPLIANTS by Aeschylus, THE RAVAGERS explores what happens when one daughter discovers herself at the precipice between obedience and resistance. This site-specific production weaves together themes of family strength and political power with the true stories of forbidden love under oppressive regimes. Lavender Magazine called the 2011 production, ingenious and hauntingly evocative.
Audiences will be invited to move about the space for a brief series of scenes following intermission. Most of the performance is seated. Moving about the space during these scenes is not required, but encouraged, if possible.
CONTENT WARNING: The Ravagers explores complicated themes of manipulation, cults, and political power. The production also contains simulated acts of violence and sex. Recommended for audiences 16+.
