This Tainted Earth

This lyrical drama, partly inspired by Greek myths around Iphigenia and Agamemnon, is about a powerful family striving to preserve their deep bonds in the face of a long-term war.  THIS TAINTED EARTH is also very much about this particular moment in American society, reflecting the country’s involvement in far-away conflicts – and the conflicted and evolving role of women in our culture.  And it’s got some comedy in it too.

In Dec. 2018, the play was given a public reading at ART/NY by Project Y Theatre, starring Joseph Siravo (Lincoln Center’s Oslo).
