WHAT IS IT ABOUT?

The multiple Obie-Award winning theatre company Clubbed Thumb is proud to present Amazons and Their Men by Jordan Harrison, directed by Ken Rus Schmoll. In Amazons and Their Men the Frau used to make beautiful films for a fascist government. Now she's trying to direct a film that's simply beautiful. The Frau casts herself in the lead role of the Amazon queen Penthesilea, who falls for Achilles on the battlefield of the Trojan War. But when her actors start disappearing, it becomes difficult for the Frau to ignore the real war outside her sound stage. Inspired by the life and work of Leni Riefenstahl.
