October 16 - October 24, 2009
The Harvard-Radcliffe Dramatic Club presents the 2009 Visiting Director’s Project and first HRDC Mainstage production of the year, "The Flies" by Jean-Paul Sartre. After a lifetime of exile, Orestes returns to his childhood home of Argos to find it plagued by heat, terror, and decay. His sister is a slave, his mother barely a shadow, and his father’s murderer still sits on the throne. What is everyone in Argos so afraid of? Why do they all wear black? Where do all these flies come from? Join visiting professional director Geordie Broadwater as he reimagines Jean-Paul Sartre’s reimagining of a classic Greek story. One part western, one part horror, one part existential crisis, "The Flies” asks: would you rather have purpose or freedom? Written by Jean-Paul Sartre, directed by Geordie Broadwater '04, and produced by Ali Leskowitz ’11 and Liz Krane ’11. Performing on the Loeb Mainstage: Friday, October 16 at 8pm, Saturday, October 17 at 8pm, Sunday, October 18 at 8pm, Thursday, October 22 at 8pm, Friday, October 23 at 8pm, Saturday, October 24 at 8pm.
