Phaedra

JEAN RACINE

January 30th & February 7th​ 2020

Phaedra centers on the tragic fate of Phaedra, wife of Theseus, the King of Athens, who falls passionately in love with her stepson, Hippolytus. At first Phaedra attempts to deny her attraction for the handsome young Hippolytus, but when word arrives that Theseus has been slain, Phaedra declares her love, much to the shock and dismay of Hippolytus, who is deeply enamored of another. When Theseus then returns unharmed, Phaedra realizes the extent of her grievous error, and she makes no attempt to stop her loyal servant, Oenone, from falsely denouncing Hippolytus as a would-be seducer. Furious, Theseus sends his son into exile—thereby setting in motion the inexorable series of events in which the lives of the characters spin wildly out of control and become subject to the will of the gods—who exact their tragic and inevitable retribution.
