Stanford Classics in Theater performs a contemporary re-telling of Euripides' "Cyclops" at Toyon Hall, May 23-25
May 23rd-May 25th
Otis and Us of Ithaca, New York are like any old band touring the Williamsburg circuit. They're tearing up stages, bagging chicks, and rolling their own fair-trade tobacco cigarettes all while keeping to a strict locavore, vegan, paleo-diet. Worn and exhausted from their most recent conquests at Coachella, the merry band of brooding hipsters gets lost on their journey home and ends up on star-studded Sunset Boulevard in the lair of Polly Famous, the infamous Hollywood man-eater. Our heroes only ask for some gas and a few munchies, but Polly Famous has other things on her mind, some fresh longpig perhaps? Will the band be able to get back home? Can the power of irony snatch them from the jaws of the one-eyed Polly Famous? Will the Greek chorus of frat boys and sorority girls be any use at all? Or will Earth lose God's gift to humanity as they are doomed to be wasted on Sunset Boulevard forever?
Immediately following the Stanford Commencement Ceremony at the Stanford Stadium, graduates and their guests will disburse to their departmental diploma ceremonies.
The Department of Classics will hold their diploma ceremony at the entrance to Green Library at Centennial Fountain on Lasuen Mall. Cold water and light snacks will greet you when you arrive and the ceremony will begin promptly at 12:30 P.M. The ceremony will last approximately one hour, followed by a fully catered lunch.
