By Jean Racine
In 1677 playwright Jean Racine was 38 when he penned his tenth (and greatest) play. France's most awe-inspiring dramatist, the tragic equal to Moliere's comic genius. Set in ancient Greece where the gods hold powerful sway. A focus so fiercely intense, you'll be held by its mesmerizing grip. Phedre is Queen. She lives in horror of an excruciating obsession: lust for her stepson. With Deborah Staples in the title role.
