Promethea in Prison is an innovative theatrical reading of Aeschylus’ Prometheus Bound presented as a catalyst for discussion about the relationships between the imprisoned and their jailers. As punishment for giving fire to mankind, Zeus sentences Promethea to be chained to a rock at the end of the world for eternity. She remains steadfast in the righteousness of her cause throughout her punishment. This unique, participatory twist on the ancient myth highlights interplay between confrontation and compassion and will be performed by acclaimed, nationally-renowned actors to be announced.
