McGill Classics Play presents its 2024 production of Seneca's Phaedra

Directed and Adapted by Adam Zanin

A lonely housewife burns with uncontrollable passion for her stepson, to tragic results. In the 2024 McGill Classics Play, the captivating allure of 1950s melodrama sets the stage for Seneca's immortal tragedy, Phaedra. Set amidst the decadence of a bygone era, this production unveils the complexities of human nature, the devastating consequences of yielding to irresistible impulses, and the tragic interplay between nature and reason.

Performances will be held at 2pm on February 3rd at Westmount's Victoria Hall. This venue is accessible, and the performance is pay-what-you-can. For more information: https://westmount.org/en/event/mcgill-classics-play/

Performances will also take place at 7:30 pm February 7th through the 10th 2024 at the Mainline Theatre. Please note that this venue has a flight of stairs. For more information and for tickets, please go to:
