Art and politics — indeed the dawn of politics — meet on stage when the Wabash College Theater Department presents The Furies, open now through Saturday. The ancient Greek drama will be staged in the Experimental Theater with curtain at 8 p.m. each evening. Tickets are free, but should be reserved at
The Furies is the last third of the Aeschylus’ trilogy, The Oresteia, which was first performed in almost 2,500 years ago. The translation is by Ted Hughes, but the show’s director, Rory Willats, has given his actors room to tell the old story in modern ways. 
“It was important for us not to limit the scope of the language by squeezing it into any particular time period,” said Willats, a senior theater major directing his first main stage production. “To do that, we have aimed to keep it timeless while using mostly Greek references . . . The play is a long poem and the language is gorgeous. Because no students here have performed this kind of play we got to begin right at the beginning. The actors have done an incredible job developing their own rules for performance.”
The play picks up with Orestes, who has murdered his mother, Clytemnestra, as he heads to Athens. He is tormented by the Furies, who seek vengeance on behalf of Clytemnestra, and eventually goes on trial in front of Athena. Apollo argues for Orestes, and the Furies want justice — and blood — for Clytemnestra’s murder.
