The Suppliants

Theatre Troupe Jeock
Seoul, South Korea


A group of sisters, fleeing forced marriages, sail across the Mediterranean Sea seeking asylum in Europe. Pelasgus and his citizens face a "tragic choice." That is, whether to accept the refugee women and the war that will result, or to reject them. A spartan production of Aeschylus' ancient drama, which is ours as well, with three performers and a cellist.
