Circe tells the tale of a Greek goddess who turns to the mortal world to find her power. In her bold and luminous epic, bestselling author Madeline Miller expertly weaves mythology, romance, family rivalry and war into a vivid and compelling celebration of the indomitable female spirit. Miller’s daring retelling of a Greek classic echoes Ellen McLaughlin’s world-premiere adaptation of The Oresteia—the grand finale production of Michael Kahn’s tenure as Artistic Director—in chronicling a deluge of violence that can only be stopped when society peers into its own soul and sees the depths of its complicity.
