Oresteia will take place on Oct. 11, 12, 13, 18, 19, and 20 at 7:30 p.m. each night.  Matinees are to happen on Oct. 13 and 20 at 2 p.m. each day.  All performances will go on at the Nancy Niles Sexton Stage, located inside Walden Theatre at 1123 Payne Street in the Highlands.

Evening performances are $15 for adults, $10 for students, and $10 for seniors.  Matinee shows, meanwhile are $10 for adults, $8 for seniors, and $8 for students.  All tickets can be purchased through Walden Theatre by calling 502-589-0084.  

The Greek tragedy Oresteia begins with Agamemnon's arrival home after the Trojan War.  His return sets off a wave of betrayal, murder, and even dysfunction between the gods.  The play deals with issues of love, hate, and social justice.

Aeschylus created Oresteia, which Julane Havens adapted and directed for the Walden Theatre stage.

More information on the show can be found at the Walden Theatre website.
