Orestes 2.0
 A thrilling channel-surf between ancient Greeks and American pop culture, Orestes 2.0 is a radical response to Euripides' post-war tragedy.

It is six days after the murder of Clytemnestra at the hands of her children, Orestes and Electra. The Furies haunt Orestes. Electra is in damage control. Veterans returned from the Trojan War find the nightmares, disorder, and ruin of battle, have followed them home. Charles Mee's electrifying play slices together verbatim material from court transcripts, the poetry of Apollinaire, the TV Guide, autopsy reports and pop song lyrics to create a unique and blistering examination of State, Fate, War and Love.

Performances will take place in the Robert E. Nims Theatre in the UNO Performing Arts Center, and will run February 19th through February 23rd at 7:30pm, and Sunday February 24th at 2:30pm. Orestes 2.0 is directed by Timothy O'Neal and features an all-student cast: Mason Joiner,  Kaitlyn Heckel, Blair Pourciau, Robert Facio, Aaron Davis, Kyle Woods, Jesse Stephens, William Watkins, Peter Smith, Kayln Hepting, Sarah Chatelain, Betsy Borrego, Ashton Akridge, Hunter Christopher, Justin Guidroz, Marino DeLeon, Franny Harold, John Neisler, Matthew Rigdon, and: Anthonyka Ferdinand (Set Design); Tony French (Costume Design); Diane Baas (Lighting Designer); Kevin Griffith (Props); Kit Sternberger (Stage Manager); Justin Guidroz (Sound Design); Michael Krikorian (Fight Choreographer).
