Josie Seid will be adapting the tragedy HERAKLES, by Euripides, for Orphic, lending her modern voice to the ancient tale.
LineStorm’s Bimonthly Reading Series continues with a modern retelling of the Greek tragedy HECUBA, reimagined from an African American perspective and tied together with original music.
