Minor Theater premieres PATHETIC at Abrons Arts Center

View Website

Riffing on Racine’s Phèdre in the style of a teen drama, Minor Theater’s new production is all about love: violent, obsessive, and sick. In a city in the U.S. Southwest, a bunch of kids are trying to survive high school, but their parents’ gross passions keep f***ing things up for them. Mashing up a contemporary idiom with newly translated sections of Racine’s tragedy, PATHETIC challenges us to identify with truly excessive emotion, and giggle and squirm as we watch U.S. America’s grownups devour their young. Written and directed by Julia Jarcho and designed by Ásta Bennie Hostetter, Jenny Seastone, and Ben Williams.

Venue: Abrons Arts Center
