Tantalus: Behind the Mask

Dec 16, 2020 - May 31, 2021

Details

17 years to write. Six months to rehearse. 10 plays to recount the Trojan War. One documentary that captured it all.


Twenty years ago, the DCPA Theatre Company and Royal Shakespeare Company embarked upon the most ambitious play ever to have been attempted— TANTALUS. Now a part of theatrical history, you are invited to peer into the creation of this world premiere. Join us for a virtual viewing party of TANTALUS: Behind the Mask, a two-and-a-half hour documentary that captured all the determination, drama, and artistry that led to this highly acclaimed and unforgettable theatrical experience.


Registrants will receive two reminder emails — one day before and one hour before the event — with the link to join the watch party on YouTube. During the watch party, viewers may submit questions to the creative team to be answered in a Q&A at a later date.
