"Director, actor and scriptwriter Amy Sass's Clytemnestra is as fierce as she is seductive... The oft-poetic dialogue has an edgy vein of modern cheekiness... a minimalist albeit intense and well-performed show punctuated by moments of effortless poetry and wit."

- Daily Californian

 

 

"Sass uses the Trojan War as a backdrop for a script that's actually about sex, gender, and power. She brings depth and complexity to the three principal characters. A lot of the play's success owes to Sass' ability to work in threes... There's an odd symmetry between the wicked queen and her rival Cassandra, who has the opposite temperament… The women's tense relationship is best encapsulated in the moment that Clytemnestra tenderly kisses Cassandra, while sticking a knife in her back."
