Seven against Thebes
Directed by George Eugeniou
‘O Fate, whose gifts are cruel and grievous…’
The sole surviving part of Aeschylus’ trilogy on the Oedipus saga focuses on its protagonist Eteocles, who defends the besieged city of Thebes against the Argive army led by his exiled brother Polyneices.
The predestined fratricide of the two accursed sons of Oedipus unfolds through the eyes of the Theban women who, despite their desperate pleas, see Eteocles choose to succumb to his fate.
The play asks us to consider whether our lives are determined by the choices we make, or by the thread of existence woven by destiny.
This performance is the first part of a cycle of five plays to be performed by Theatro Technis on the story of Oedipus by the three ancient Greek tragedians Aeschylus, Sophocles and Euripides.
