lastdaughterJoin Babes With Blades ensemble members and the artistic staff for a pre-show reception! Enjoy Greek-themed hors d’oeuvres and a behind-the-scenes peek at the people and processes that guided The Last Daughter of Oedipus to its world premiere (our review ★★★½). Then settle in for the show, and follow Ismene, sole surviving child of Oedipus and Jocasta, as she fights to break the curse that devastated her family and now threatens to destroy Thebes. This groundbreaking production combines sword and shield, staff, and unarmed combat with voice and movement work to push the boundaries of physical and vocal storytelling
