Women of Trachis
By Sophocles, translated by C.K. Williams and Gregory W. Dickerson, adapted and directed by Javen Tanner
Mutability; uncertainty; a universe of precipitous change: these themes are at the heart of Sophocles' tragic vision. There are no subtle shifts of Fortune's favors in this tragedy, only stunning and total reversals, a relentless spinning of her fickle wheel. Thought to have been written about 440 BC, midway through the poet's career, Women of Trachis has long suffered from neglect by scholars despite its sophistication and raw energy.
