Vanderbilt University Theatre presents The Suppliants by Aeschylus, directed by Jonathan Vandenberg, Senior Lecturer of Theatre. Synopsis: Facing oppression in their homeland, a father and his daughters sail to Greece seeking asylum. The Greek leader expresses security concerns. The premise of this Ancient Greek drama could be taken from today’s headlines. Aeschylus, author of the world’s oldest extant dramas, explores dislocation and community through the timeless figure of the refugee.
