The Greek tragedy Oresteia begins with Agamemnon's arrival home after the Trojan War.  His return sets off a wave of betrayal, murder, and even dysfunction between the gods.  The play deals with issues of love, hate, and social justice.
 
Aeschylus created Oresteia, which Julane Havens adapted and directed for the Walden Theatre stage.
