On the precipice of the Trojan War, the Greek army has assembled at Aulis to sail for Troy. But there isn’t a hint of wind. The King and his advisors debate a terrible contingency plan: sacrifice the King’s young child, Iphigenia, to ensure favorable winds and speed their way to battle. This ancient myth is usually presented from the point of view of the nervous and conflicted parents who decide what to do on behalf of their child. In Pauline Mol’s version of the story, designed for middle and high school audiences and their families, we focus on Iphigenia herself. A poetic rendering of the challenges of childhood in a time of uncertainty, this play highlights the intelligence and bravery of young people. Ultimately, it invites us to consider the incredible demands society places on youth and what they deserve to expect of the world around them.

Content Warning:  This play includes discussion of war, death, and sacrifice. Recommended for middle and high school audiences and their families (12+).
