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 ChuckWCast list:Electra: Amanda FridayEvarista, wife of Don Urbano: Sarah TerryMaximo: KHandDon Salvador Pantoja: NegatronThe Marquis of Ronda: ToddHWDon Leonardo Cuesta, a broker: AnthonyDon Urbano Garcia Yuste: Phil SchempfMariano, assistant in the laboratory: Eden Rea-HedrickGil, a mathematician: AvailleBalbina, an old servant: Etel BussPatros, a young servant: CJ PlogJose, an old manservant: om123Sister Dorotea: Beth ThomasA Workman: David OlsonThe Shade of Eleuteria: Mary KayNarrator: RapunzelinaEditor: ToddHW
