Welcome to Thebes
April 30 @ 8:00 pm
Written by Moira Buffini
Directed by Michael E. Hughes
Featuring the Third-Year students of the Dawson Professional Theatre Program
“He put this gun into my hand and made me human once again.”
Faced with an impoverished population, a shattered infrastructure and a volatile army, the first democratic president of Thebes, Eurydice, promises peace to her nation. Without the aid of Theseus, the leader of the vastly wealthy state of Athens, she doesn’t stand a chance. But Theseus is arrogant, mercurial and motivated by profit. A swaggering opposition circles, impatient for insurrection. The body of the former dictator lies unburied.
Set in the present day but inspired by ancient myth, Welcome to Thebes offers a passionate exploration of an encounter between the world’s richest and the world’s poorest countries in the aftermath of a brutal war.
