Celebrating its fifth anniversary, Aulos Productions is proud to present a double-bill revival. For one price, catch expanded versions of two of their most critically-acclaimed shows: “Women of the Mourning Fields” and “Antigone na h’Éireann”.
WOMEN OF THE MOURNING FIELDS
Slandered by history. Forgotten as women.
Rome’s final curtain has fallen, yet three women still linger in the wings. Tainted by Emperor Nero’s legacy, his mother Agrippina fights against the injustice of history. Forced onto the stage with her resentful daughter-in-law and the woman who usurped her role, another unwelcome performance is imminent…but scripts can always be rewritten.
