Alcestis | UGA Theatre

Through the trickery of the god Apollo, King Ademetus is spared the fate of death – but with a catch: someone must take his place. With no one willing to accept the sacrifice, his loyal wife Alcestis answers the call. What follows is a satirical tragicomedy that questions our relationship with life, death, and love from a uniquely modern perspective – complete with appearances by the debauched demigod Herakles and the personification of Death itself. Utilizing digital masks and actor-driven technology, this original adaptation aims to breathe new life into Euripides’ irreverent tale.

Performed outdoors in the MLC Terrace Amphitheater.
