As you may have heard, we took a class this month called Attic Tragedy that involved reading (a LOT) and the performance of one play, The Suppliants (Aeschylus). This performance was last night. Lee took a leading role as the sole Greek, Pelasgus and the three of us are members of the chorus of Egyptian suppliants running away to Greece. The costume of the chorus was all black and I was seamstress and sewed our sashes which were of varying colors.
You can't see it very well but everyone we walked past on the way to school could: we all had Egyptian eye make-up.
An hour after the show found most of us in the library working on our papers (due today) and I can only imagine how that looked to anyone who didn't realize what was going on.
We're off to Lesbos tomorrow for four weeks; it's a rather large island off the coast of Turkey. Swimming? I hope so.
