Time Out says

Friendly warning! We're working hard to be accurate. But these are unusual times, so please check that events are still happening.

American Thymele Theatre's 11th annual New York Euripides Summer Festival travels to three locations to perform two rarely seen plays by the Ancient Greek master. Stephen Diacrussi directs Iphigenia Among the Taurians, in which a tormented Orestes discovers that his sister—whose sacrifice prompted a series of murderous revenges—is still alive and making human sacrifices of her own; Annabelle Lau directs Daughters of Troy, in which refugee Trojan women moan themselves hoarse in the wake of their city's destruction. The two shows are performed in rep.
