MoLoRa Tickets Now On Sale
Set after the fall of apartheid, South African playwright and director Yael Farber's MoLoRa re-imagines the ancient Greek Oresteia to tell the story of her own country's painful and extraordinary transition to democracy. As Klytemnestra and Elektra-mother and daughter, perpetrator and victim-sit to face each other in an open hearing, MoLoRa reenacts a watershed moment in world history, illuminating the universal and excruciating choice for any victim: to seek revenge or choose forgiveness.  Visit MoLoRa.org

for tickets and more information.
