Aeschylus' Perzen

Company: Theatergroep Hollandia.
Directors: Johan Simons & Paul Koek.
Translation: Herman Altena.

At the same location where in 1989 the succesful production of
Aeschylus' Prometheus was realized, Theatergroep Hollandia
now performs Persians: a former blue fabric, presently used as
breaker's yard. One actor, one actress, and a chorus of three
singers, three old men, a woman and a child, will act in a
production that is best defined as music- theatre.
