FEATURES / CONTAINS

Exterior Set

The world-famous story of Hippolytus, first told by Euripides and subsequently by Seneca, Racine, and other masters, is now retold by America's foremost poetic dramatist. It is the story of the triangle of the king, Theseus, his second wife, Phaedra, and his son, Hippolytus. In the king's absence Phaedra makes love to the handsome Hippolytus. He is scandalized, and repulses her. Injured, Phaedra tells the returning king that Hippolytus forced himself upon her. The king kills his son before he realizes the truth, then falls upon his body in agonizing remorse.
