Listen to this story
You've heard of "Shakespeare in the Park" -- now a group of Potsdam actors is taking classic Greek theater outdoors. Performances of Euripides' Hippolytus will be given in Ives Park this Friday and Saturday night (6:30). Director Michael Emmitt, a drama major at SUNY-Potsdam, has created a new version of the mythical tale with eight local actors. Themes in the play include love, betrayal, revenge and forgiveness. Todd Moe talks with Emmitt about presenting this Greek tragedy along the Racquette River.
