“Sirens of Lachesis”: A New Play at Bilkent

09 December 2013 Comments Off on “Sirens of Lachesis”: A New Play at Bilkent

This Thursday and Friday, the Departments of English Language and Literature and American Culture and Literature will present the premiere performances of “Sirens of Lachesis.” Written and directed by Ceren Turan, a senior student majoring in computer science and minoring in English language and literature, the play will feature ELIT senior Erolcan Talas in the role of Noah, the male lead.

With a well-paying job and a loving wife, Noah’s life at first glance seems ideal. But as the curtains veiling the truth are slowly lifted, we see a man unsatisfied with both his career and his personal life.

Noah is a playwright in his early thirties who works in an advertising agency.  Throughout the play, we see the clash between his and his wife Helen’s true inner selves and the social masks they wear. Commenting on the roles people are forced to play in order to be accepted by society, the play also satirizes “seem-to-be” intellectuals.

Everyone is invited to come and be a part of these performances on December 12 and 13 at 6 p.m., at the FMPA (Faculty of Music and Performing Arts) Theater. “Sirens of Lachesis” is written and will be performed in English.
