Directed by Alan Dilworth, the cast will feature Spring Awakening's Eryn Murman in the title role with Stephen Bogaert as Agamemnon, Sarah Orenstein as Clytemnestra, David Fox as the Old Man, Eric Goulem as Menelaus and Stephen Gartner as Achilles. The Greek chorus includes Neema Bickersteth, Bronwyn Caudle and Sarena Parmar.

Nicolas Billon penned the adaptation of the Euripides classic.

"What is the value of one person's life in a time of war?" ask press notes. "Euripides's Iphigenia at Aulis is an electrifying Greek drama that examines the relationship of personal sacrifice to prevailing power structures."

The creative team also includes co-producer/assistant director Miriam Fernandes, translator Roger Beck, designer Jung-Hye Kim, sound designer Thomas Ryder Payne and lighting designer Kim Purtell.

Factory Theatre – Mainspace is located at 125 Bathurst Street, Toronto. For more information and tickets visit www.summerworks.ca.
