The piece follows a Greek king who abandons his war torn country for the safety of a cliff-side cave, and who must live an extended thousand year lifespan until he makes a decision about how to handle his human responsibilities. It is part of a trilogy that utilizes the construction of a Greek drama and the sensibility of a classic fairy tale to examine the ramifications of antique guilt on the modern conscience.
The cast will feature Melody Bates, Alexander Borinsky, Tim Eliot, Michael Ingle, Mikeah Jennings, Liz Santoro, Hillary Spector, and Tanisha Thompson.
