CASTING CALL

PHAEDRA A TRAGEDY BY JEAN RACINE Based on Euripides

Phaedra, wife of Theseus, King of Athens, is madly in love with her stepson, Hippolytus. Believing her spouse to have been slain, she declares her passion to the handsome prince. However, her confession is met with surprise and scorn: Hippolytus is in love with another. When Theseus unexpectedly returns, Phaedra realizes her fatal error. There ensues a series of dramatic events where neither the courage of the protagonists nor their desperate schemes can save them from the destructive wrath of the gods.
