THE HYPOCRITES present
ALL OUR TRAGIC
“A marathon of tragic proportions.”
ALL AGES EVENT!

INTRODUCTION:
One of the most ambitious and critically-acclaimed storefront productions ever staged: a 12-hour marathon of all 32 surviving Greek tragedies.

SYNOPSIS:
ALL OUR TRAGIC is an epic cycle-play adaptation of the 32 surviving Greek tragedies. After a diligent two-and-a-half years of writing, Sean Graney completed a 865 page draft representing a twelve-hour theatrical event featuring the entire canon of Aeschylus, Sophocles and Euripides. This is a modern Festival of Dionysus, the immersive, durational-theater experience of the Ancient Greeks for which these plays were originally written. These incredible festivals were designed to encourage civic conversation about important contemporary topics by incorporating music, politics and eating.

PLEASE NOTE: The full performance will take 12 hours including all breaks and intermissions. All seats are general admission. Snacks, lunch and dinner are included in the price of the ticket. All food is vegetarian and most items are vegan. You are free to bring in your own snacks or meals if you prefer (and there are plenty of options nearby to go buy things).
