Herakles: The 46th Annual Classical Greek Theatre Festival

The Classical Greek Theatre Festival at Westminster will tour a production of Euripides’ rarely performed tragedy Herakles. The tour runs throughout Utah from September 2–25 and debuts at Westminster College on September 2 at 7:30 p.m.

Herakles follows the Greek hero Herakles as he finishes his last heroic labor and returns home. Herakles arrives home just in time to prevent his family from being killed by the unlawful ruler Lycus, but the jealous goddess Hera intervenes and tragedy ensues.

The production will be set in 1969, featuring Herakles as a veteran coming home from Vietnam and struggling with PTSD. The show will use a selection of large puppets to represent some characters, including the Greek gods, the Greek Chorus
