All Our Tragic is Sean Graney’s 12-hour adaptation of all 32 surviving Greek tragedies combined. It acts as a blueprint for a modern Festival of Dionysus.

A public work-in-progress presentation of All Our Tragic will take place on Saturday, May 17, 2013, from 10 a.m. to 10 p.m., at the Knafel Center at the Radcliffe Institute for Advanced Study.

The presentation will feature the text in full, roughly staged, with no design elements. It will include intermissions and meal breaks when the audience can mingle with the playwright/director and the 17 actors. The actors will be playing the scenes on their feet while reading from electronic devices, and the script will be projected on a large screen, allowing the audience to read along.

This unique theatrical event is free and open to the public.

Snacks will be provided throughout the day. Please come and go at your leisure, although maintained endurance for the entire event is encouraged.
