Originally staged in the Teatro Español in 1901, Electra is a controversial Spanish drama that documents the trials and tribulations of its innocent heroine. Electra is a young woman of unknown parentage who is raised in a convent in France and, after the death of her mother Eleuteria, adopted by her aunt and uncle. Electra soon falls in love with the scientist Maximo, but an intricate web of rumors and lies threatens to ruin their relationship. In this play, Benito Pérez Galdós tackles a number of hot-button themes: fanaticism, superstition, social justice, rationalism, and the powers of science. - Summary by ChuckW Cast list: Electra: Amanda Friday Evarista, wife of Don Urbano: Sarah Terry Maximo: KHand Don Salvador Pantoja: Negatron The Marquis of Ronda: ToddHW Don Leonardo Cuesta, a broker: Anthony Don Urbano Garcia Yuste: Phil Schempf Mariano, assistant in the laboratory: Eden Rea-Hedrick Gil, a mathematician: Availle Balbina, an old servant: Etel Buss Patros, a young servant: CJ Plog Jose, an old manservant: om123 Sister Dorotea: Beth Thomas A Workman: David Olson The Shade of Eleuteria: Mary Kay Narrator: Rapunzelina Editor: ToddHW
