World Premiere #59: a Central Works Method Play

Palace Wreckers: a “revenge comedy.” Based on the Oresteia by Aeschylus, the play Hamlet echoes, in a way, the story of Orestes—but funny.

There’s an old house, once a stately mansion, out in the high deserts of Nevada. The old place is surrounded by a huge junkyard, a family owned auto-wrecking yard called Palace Wreckers. Oresteez, a prodigal son of sorts, returns home with his sister, Elektra. Their father has died, and the two estranged siblings want to reunite with their bereft mother. But there’s a new man in the house. And Elektra soon begins to suspect it was foul play that put her beloved father in the grave. Elektra wants revenge! What’s our prodigal son to do?

How about that for a comedy?
