Sirens of Lachesis, A New Play at Bilkent
We are pleased to announce the joint Theater Production of Bilkent University English Language and Literature and American Culture and Literature Departments, "Sirens of Lachesis". The play is written and directed by Ceren Turan, a Computer Science Senior minoring in English Language and Literature. Erolcan Talas (ELIT Senior) will be in the role of Noah, the male lead.
A well paying job in advertising, and a loving wife. At the first glance, Noah’s life seems above the ideal. As the curtains slowly unveil, we see a man unsatisfied with his career and his personal life. Noah is a playwright in his early thirties, though he works in an advertising agency. Throughout the play, we will get to see the clash between Noah’s and his wife Helen’s true inner selves and the social masks they carry. Commenting on the roles people are forced to play in order to be accepted by the society, the play also satirically criticizes “seem-to-be intellectuals”.
