Herakles: Work In Progress says
Orange Theatre invites you to a Work-In-Progress showing of its newest work, based on the Greek tragedy of Herakles by Euripides.

While Herakles is in Hades completing his 12th labor, his father-in-law, Kreon, is overthrown and killed by Lykos. In order to solidify his grip on the throne, Lykos has determined to execute all of the old king's relatives, including Herakles' wife, father, and children. The hero returns in time to save them, but is stricken by the goddesses Iris and Madness, who cause him to murder his wife and children in a frenzy.

Three Nights Only.
