THE FLEA THEATER
Starting performances January 19th, 2012
In THESE SEVEN SICKNESSES, Sophocles’ seven surviving plays - Oedipus, In Trachis, In Colonus, Philoktetes, Ajax, Elektra & Antigone - combine with music and food to create a stunning portrait of the human condition, where the intermingling of chance & fate yields disquieting results. A witty & relevant interpretation of the classics, THESE SEVEN SICKNESSES is an epic examination of the past & a window on the present.
