PLAYWRIGHTS' ARENA at Atwater Village Theatre presents a brand new play
by Donald Jolly directed by Jon Lawrence Rivera
A gaggle of male harpies take us on a fantastical tale that re-imagines the Ancient Greek myth of the god Zeus and his boy-lover Ganymede, placing it in 1950s Baltimorea time of racial segregation, strict sexual mores, and harsh consequences for those who dont conform. Gio is a lonely and misunderstood teenager. When Gio becomes smitten with Tremaine, a Black stranger more than twice his age, the boys life changes in ways beyond his wildest imagination.
