Performed first in Athens in the 467 bce (and thus one of our two earliest extant tragedies), Seven Against Thebes shows us the ramp-up to a war and its consequences on a nation and a family. The nation is Thebes and the family belongs to Oedipus, who has cursed his sons to a single doom. Our production explores the urge to fight and the response of the community.
