    Co-created by IUP Department of Theater and Dance’s Carrie Cole and members of the ensemble and community, Electriad explores the consequences of war.

    War may end, but are the battles ever over? The Electriad uses the Greek myths surrounding Electra and her brother, Orestes, to explore the consequences of war faced by the people most affected by it. The warriors, the home front, and the displaced seeking refuge in sometimes hostile lands experience the varied consequences of battle.

    This play includes language and situations which may trigger emotional or psychological responses for some audience members and is not recommended for audience members under the age of 17.
