A group of Kansas University students who put on Euripides' "Orestes" in an ancient theater in Greece this summer will revive the play here in Lawrence this weekend. The performances will be at 7:30 p.m. Aug. 24 and Aug. 25 in the Crafton-Preyer Theatre in Murphy Hall on KU's campus.
The original production was part of a six-week study abroad program in Lawrence's sister city, Iniades. The story follows Orestes' trial for the murder of his mother and her lover, which Orestes says was ordered of him by Apollo.
Tickets are $15 for the public, $10 for students and $14 for seniors and KU employees. They can be purchased at the performance, at kutheatre.com or by calling 864-3982.
