“He put this gun into my hand and made me human once again.”

Set in the present day but inspired by Greek myth, this provocative drama is a passionate exploration of an encounter between the world’s richest and the world’s poorest countries in the aftermath of a brutal war.

Faced with an impoverished population, a shattered infrastructure and a volatile army, the first democratic president of Thebes, Eurydice, promises peace to her nation. But without the aid of Theseus, the leader of the vastly wealthy state of Athens, she doesn’t stand a chance.

This production contains adult themes.
