'With Fates Driving' Worthy of Triumph

Running from Oct. 9 to Oct. 11, Harvard-Radcliffe Dramatic Club’s “With Fates Driving”—written by Alona Bach ’16, scored by Eric R. Corcoran ’16, and directed by Sean K. Hardy ’16—presented a brilliant treatment of the fourth book of Virgil’s “Aeneid” that was both fresh and loyal to the source, proving definitively that it is possible to present an interesting and novel treatment of a text without subjecting it to intellectual fads.
