The J. Paul Getty Museum has announced that the second of three productions in its annual Villa Theater Lab Series at the Getty Villa will be Not Man Apart Physical Theatre Ensemble's presentation of The Madness of Hercules, by the Roman playwright Seneca the Younger. It will be presented for public performances, May 20-22.

The piece portrays one of the most bitter and grotesque legends of this half-mortal son of Zeus -- Hercules' maddened slaughter of his own innocent wife and children. Seneca's play asks: how does a man survive his own unforgivable crimes?

The cast will include John F. Bocca (Hercules), Apollo Dukakis (Amphytrion), Natacha Roi (Juno/ Magera), Randolph Curtis Rand (Lycus), Alix Angelis (Pleasure/ Wrath), Kris Angelis (Virtue/ Fury), Andrew Heffernan (Watchmen 1), Deus Scott (Watchmen 2), and Jones Welsh (Watchmen 3).

The production will feature scenic design by Jeffrey Eisenmann, lighting design by Jessica Kohn, sound design by Adam Phalen, and costume design by Allison Leach and Rachel Engstrom.

The Getty's Villa Theater Lab features outstanding artists or ensembles presenting "in process" public presentations of new work rooted in classic literature or culture.
