Taffety Punk presents PHAETON

  • Capitol Hill Arts Workshop 545 7th Street, SE Washington, DC 20003 (map)

This retelling of the classical Greek myth explores the failure of society to live up to the promise of its visionaries - and the tragic repercussions of that failure.  

"On the anniversary of his queen's death, King Thetis intends to wed the beautiful commoner, Clymene, and to usher in an era of peace after an age of vicious war. However his son, Prince Thrasymachus, has other ideas. Only Pheaton, Clymene's unusual son, and a vital collection of village women, stand in the way of the Prince's diabolical plan."

Hosted by Capitol Hill Arts Workshop.
