Welcome to Thebes
by Moira Buffini
Director: Brian Parkinson
Thebes: an impoverished population, a shattered infrastructure, a volatile army, and ruled by a woman, the first democratic president. Eurydice promises peace but without the aid of Theseus, the leader of a vastly wealthy state, she doesn’t stand a chance. A swaggering opposition circles, impatient for insurrection. Inspired by ancient myth, but set in the present day. A passionate exploration of a clash between the world’s richest and the world’s poorest countries in the aftermath of a brutal war.
