"The most brutal fate is to see one's fate."
—Iphigenia, Iphigenia Among the Stars
A king sacrifices his daughter to a goddess so he can wage an interstellar war. But the goddess intervenes and instead exiles the girl to a life of servitude light years from home. Years later, Princess Iphigenia, like her father, must choose between duty and desire—and her choice will have consequences beyond the bounds of space and time. Inspired by the electrifying imagery of comic book legend Jack Kirby, this new adaptation of two tragedies by Euripides takes us on a cosmic journey to a galaxy where gods and heroes are real, but their destinies have not yet been written.
