The Zeus Problem
Feb 3, 2017 - Feb 25, 2017
A dark comedy about a god and the mess he made.
Zeus has chained Prometheus to a rock to punish him for stealing fire and giving it to mankind. To top it off, he’s made sure an eagle perpetually eats Prometheus’ constantly regenerating liver. Meanwhile, he’s turned a beautiful woman into a cow for very self-serving reasons. What happens when they all sit at the same table for dinner? And what happens when a famous writer decides to disseminate the story? Things get weird. Inspired by Aeschylus’ Prometheus Bound and current events, The Zeus Problem is an original tale about abuse of power, the potential of storytelling, and the importance of a stretchy waistband at the dinner table.
