On Friday, March 5 at 2 P.M. CST the EUC will host an interactive theater performance of Aeschylus’s “The Suppliants” by Out of Chaos Theatre. “The Suppliants” tells the story of the Danaids who fled their native Egypt to escape forced marriage. Arriving as refugees in Greece, they supplicate the gods and the king of the city of Argos, seeking a refuge and a new home. The post-performance discussion features a panel of speakers on the topics of refugees in Greece and the Mediterranean, on federal approaches to U.S. immigration, and on the work of local immigration activists.
