About

The play Hojang Taret is a Greek tragedy about ethical ambiguities of fraternal conflict that lead to the destruction of the city of Thebes. It is based on Phoenician Women, a tragedy written by Euripides, between 411 and 409 BC, in the aftermath of a major defeat of his homeland, Athens.


In this version of the myth by Euripides, Jacosta, the mother has not yet committed suicide and tries to mediate between her two sons - Eteocles and Polyneices contending for the throne. They ignore her efforts to avert the tragedy of the war between themselves, finally killing each other. Jacosta, overcome with grief, kills herself immediately leading to the destruction of the Thebes.
