The ever-adventurous Bread and Water Theatre's exploration of Aeschylus' "Oresteia" trilogy, which began with "Agamemnon" and "The Libation Bearers," comes to a close with a contemporary take on the ancient Greek story: "Orestes 2.0" by Charles Mee, this time based on Euripides' "Orestes." In a modern setting, veterans of the Trojan War return home, only to find that there is no escaping the disorder and the nightmare of war. "Orestes 2.0" opened last weekend, and continues this weekend and next.

Bread and Water Theatre's "Orestes 2.0" continues Friday, May 15, and Saturday, May 16, and May 29 and 30 at 7:30 p.m. and Sundays, May 17 and 31, at 2 p.m. 172 West Main Street. $8-$14. 271-5523.
