An adaption of Marguerite Duras' screenplay, "Hiroshima Mon Amour," and of Aeschylus' "The Libation Bearers," "The Memory Furies" re-imagines the bloodthirsty tragedies of the House of Atreus, the most plagued family of all Western culture, and a love affair in Hiroshima, the place death has preserved forever. It follows two quests, two journeys to avenge the past, seeking blood for blood. Orestes and the lovers' pasts torment them as mythological furies. The play unfolds as a prayer to Apollo, to the gods of memory, a desperate and too-human cry: "Can you, though dead, yet heed our offering, and know our love is true?"
