The play begins in Aristophanes' Athens, which is mired in a horrible and losing war, bereft of political and artistic leadership. The play explores a cultural crisis: are the theater's great creators gone? And, if so, how are we to find or create new ones?
The cast will feature Purva Bedi, Davina Cohen, Charlie Hudson, III, Michael Levinton, Derek Lucci, Pedro Pascal, Anthony Mark Stockard and Tina Shepard.
The creative team will include Thomas Cabaniss (original music), David Evans Morris (set), Meredith Palin (costumes), and Lenore Doxsee (lighting).
Greenspan has directed and performed in his plays Jack, Principia, The Home Show Pieces, 2 Samuel 11, Etc., Dead Mother, or Shirley Not All in Vain, She Stoops to Comedy, The Myopia, an epic burlesque of tragic proportion and The Argument.
Herskovits is the founder and artistic director of Target Margin Theater, and recently directed The Argument & Dinner Party and As Yet Thou Art Young and Rash, as well as numerous other works for the company.
