Notes

All Our Tragic is an epic cycle-play adaptation of the thirty-two surviving Greek tragedies. After a diligent two-and-a-half years of writing, I have completed a eight-hundred page draft representing a twelve-hour theatrical event featuring the entire canon of Aeschylus, Sophocles and Euripides. I want to create a modern Festival of Dionysus, the immersive, durational-theater experience of the Ancient Greeks for which these plays were originally written. These incredible festivals were designed to encourage civic conversation about important contemporary topics by incorporating music, politics and eating.
