Tony-winning composer and pop star Duncan Sheik has composed music for Red Bull’s “In the Raw” workshop presentation of Olivier Kemeid’s The Aeneid, inspired by Virgil and translated by Judith G. Miller. Kay Matschullat will direct the presentation, which will be presented at Theater at St Clement’s, on Saturday, February 11 at 2pm and 8pm, and Sunday, February 12 at 3pm.

This new play transports Aeneas’s search for a homeland into the modern world of middle-eastern revolution.

The cast will include Trazana Beverley, Maha Chehlaoui, Ramsey Faragallah, Bhavesh Patel, and Heather Raffo.

“In the Raw” is a workshop program which develops new plays of heightened language and classic themes or new takes on classics through rehearsals and public performances.
