SERIES: NEVERTHELESS THEY PERSISTED

To celebrate its 20th anniversary, Stanford Repertory Theater mounts its most ambitious Summer Festival to date, “Nevertheless They Persisted,” featuring a new adaptation of Euripides’s Hecuba and Helen. Part tragedy and part comedy, Hecuba/Helen focuses on two mythic women who stand up for themselves in surprising ways, turning the tables on the men who have wreaked havoc on their lives.

The festival also includes a film series on the theme of female resistance, a symposium that explores the uses and abuses of the Trojan War in later literature and art, and an evening course that looks at Euripides through a contemporary lens.

Nevertheless They Persisted: Film Series

Stanford Repertory Theater presents a free Monday night film series focusing on heroic female protagonists. Stanford and visiting faculty will introduce each film and lead a post-screening discussion. Moving from the ancient to the modern world, we begin with the famous “trilogy” of award-winning director Michael Cacoyannis, and then follow with three films by the great German film director Margarethe von Trotta.
