The Oresteia at the Shakespeare Theatre Company in Washington D.C.  

Washington D.C.'s well-known Shakespeare Theatre Company (STC) is beginning its run of The Oresteia (written by Aeschylus, adapted by Ellen McLaughlin) and the American Classical League is delighted to host a special event with the STC as a part of the ACL's Centennial celebrations.  On Saturday, May 11, 2019, the STC will host a pre-matinee ACL workshop at 12:00 p.m. and then have a section of discounted tickets for ACL members for the matinee show (2:00 p.m.).  After the show, please celebrate with us at a light reception around the corner at Carmine's from 5:30 p.m. to 7:30 p.m.  To learn more about the show, please visit STC's website:

To sign up for the events, follow this link  Please let us know by May 4 if you will participate. 

If you can't join us on May 11, the STC will allow ACL members to use the special ACL code (CODE: ACL30) to get a 30% discount on tickets during the overall run of The Oresteia, which runs from April 30 to June 2. 

In the meantime, STC has a number of matinee performances scheduled for students and is already selling tickets for the 10:00 a.m. shows on Thursday May 9th, Wednesday May 15th , and Thursday May 23rd.  Though the show does have some violent scenes, STC felt it important to provide their usual matinee performances for students because of the adapting playwright's focus on the theme of justice. To purchase sets of student tickets, please call the STC Box Office at (202) 547-1222. To learn more about the show itself, please visit STC's
