Nevertheless They Persisted

Stanford Repertory Theater

To celebrate its 20th anniversary, Stanford Repertory Theater proudly presents 'Nevertheless They Persisted,' featuring a new adaptation of Euripides' 'Hecuba' and 'Helen,' directed by SRT Artistic Director Rush Rehm. Joined together for the first time, and presented in one evening, 'Hecuba/Helen' focuses on two mythic women who seize control of their destinies in startling ways.


This is what SF/Arts curator Sura Wood had to say about Nevertheless They Persisted :

This series includes “Electra,” “Trojan Women” and “Iphigenia,” a trio of films from Greek director Michael Cacoyannis that showcases the woes of Euripides’ tragic heroines. Also on tap: three movies by New German Cinema director Margarethe von Trotta featuring controversial female rebels: “Marianne and Juliane” about Gudrun Ensslin of the Baader-Meinhoff gang and her sister; “Hannah Arendt”; and “The Lost Honour of Katherine Blum.”
