Gary Adkins and Mischa Hooker in Oedipus RexDespite the oppressive heat, the abundance of hungry mosquitoes, and the young couple behind me rudely whispering during the entire length of the performance, I not only enjoyed but admired Saturday’s presentation of Genesius Guild’s Oedipus Rex. Director Dori Foster’s dynamic staging – which is especially dynamic for a Greek tragedy performed mostly in masks – and the cast's impressive ability to emote without the benefit of facial expressions were well worth the night's distractions.

Jason Dlouhy, Bob Hanske, Doug Adkins, and Katie Ross in AlcestisEuripides' Alcestis marks the first Genesius Guild production of a Greek tragedy I’ve seen without doing advance research on the play’s plot, which I usually do out of fear of being lost. I’m happy to say, though, that I did not get lost in the slightest during Saturday’s performance, thanks to the production's clear plot points and dialogue, ample projection from the actors speaking from behind sound-inhibiting masks, and the comfortable flow of Dori Foster’s direction. The play is interesting in its exploration of fate, and also entertaining by way of costumer Ellen Dixon’s simple yet elegant designs (particularly for the women in the chorus), Earl Strupp’s aesthetically pleasing masks (with their glittery colors and wisps of escaped locks of hair), and the cast’s earnest characterizations.
