Pasadena City College Theater Department students will be performing Euripides' Hecuba beginning October 12 in Sexson Auditorium at 8 p.m.
Written by Euripides circa 424 B.C., the tragedy takes place after the Trojan War, just before the Greeks have departed from Troy. The central figure is Hecuba, wife of King Priam, formerly Queen of the now-fallen city. It depicts Hecuba's grief over the death of her daughter, Polyxena, and the revenge she takes for the murder of her youngest son, Polydorus.
Directed by PCC instructor Heather Corwin, Hecuba will be performed on the following dates:
Tickets are sold at the door only, starting one hour prior to the performance. The cost is $5 for general admission and $3 for students, seniors, and PCC staff. The Box Office accepts cash or checks only, no credit or debit cards. Parking is available in any student lot for $2. Parking permits are available in lot vending machines.
