Helene Foley, professor of classics at Barnard College, Columbia University, New York, and author of numerous books and articles on Greek drama, looks at how a limited selection of performances and revisions of the original in English tried to make Hippolytos compelling for a modern audience. Examples will range from Eugene O'Neill's Desire under the elms and H.D.'s Hippolytus temporizes, to Tony Harrison's Phaedra Britannica, Sarah Kane's Phaedra's love, and other, less familiar productions. Euripides' Hippolytos presents special challenges to those attempting to stage or revise the play for modern audiences, such as the representation of Phaedra in an era in which female roles have changed dramatically, Hippolytos' obsessive devotion to chastity, the powerful role of punitive gods in the action, and the staging of the Greek chorus
