Undermain Theatre presents Seven Against Thebes
Undermain Theatre presents Seven Against Thebes by Danielle Georgiou & Justin Locklear, a world premiere of a new adaptation of Aeschylus’ Ancient Greek tragedy.
The climactic battle for control of Thebes, as told from the perspective of Antigone and Ismene, and the women of the city in Danielle Georgiou and Justin Locklear’s adaptation of this classic Greek tragedy. Deadly threatening enemies are standing outside the fragile walls of a city in a country unknown. The citizens continue to live their (miserable) comfortable lives. Military campaigns are rising, monies are being spent. But when iron and steel turn to dust and there is nothing left but empty promises, tragedy ensues. The city is under siege by an enemy with no name; an enemy who wears many masks. The challenge of survival looms - and what will we have to give up to remain human? Are we our own worst enemy?
