SMALL AND TIRED

COMMON GROUND THEATRE, DURHAM

THURSDAY, JAN. 7–SATURDAY, JAN. 23

The blood debt has been removed from this modern-day version of The Oresteia, Aeschylus' tragic trilogy about sons, fathers and vengeance. It isn't Clytemnestra who kills Agamemnon, and the deed follows the suicide, rather than murder, of Iphigenia. But in depicting an estranged son's return to a homeland that is now alien to him, Australian playwright Kit Brookman compares the forces of grief, memory, guilt and resentment with the vengeful gods they've replaced among a deeply damaged clan. Gregor McElvogue directs a cast that includes Jane Holding, Justin Peoples and Laurel Ullman in this Common Wealth Endeavors production. 8 p.m. Thurs.Sat.; 3 p.m. Sun., $10$15, 4815-B Hillsborough Road, Durham, 919-410-8631, www.fromcommonwealth.com. —Byron Woods
