KC Stage Live: Gorilla Theatre’s ‘Seven Against Thebes’


Gorilla Theatre’s annual Greek show is more than theatre: it’s an event. Come join us for this Saturday’s early morning performance (7:30 am, on the south steps of the Nelson) for our next round of KC Stage Live!

Look for me in the KC Stage t-shirt, and if you get there early enough, I’ll even have a couple dozen Krispy Kremes and KC Stage swag with me! Then, stick around after to discuss the show. Tickets are free to this production.

First staged in 467 BC, Aeschylus’ Seven Against Thebes┬áis the next oldest surviving tragedy and won Aeschylus a first prize at its initial performance. When Oedipus, King of Thebes, realized he had married his own mother and had four children with her, he blinded himself and cursed his sons to divide their inheritance (the kingdom) by the sword. More information about the play can be found here.

KC Stage Live! is a ‘play-watching’ club in the vein of book clubs, where we will pick a show every few months to have people attend and then discuss afterwards (either in the theatre with possibly someone from the production crew, or at a nearby bar/restaurant).
