This Restless House

by Zinnie Harris

Zinnie Harris’s electrifying epic trilogy of sacrifice and revenge is a powerful reworking of Aeschylus’ Oresteia that explodes into the contemporary psyche.  For the victor there to is a cost for unleashing war and bloodshed, the price, the inter-generational trauma that lives inscribed within us. The pain of pain remembered. Is there hope of a happy ending?
