My overall impression

I appreciated the self-aware retelling of this classic myth, particularly the way it addressed the implications of gender roles then and how we identify those roles now. In this production, the characters aren’t simply content to live out the story, they have a real point-of-view about their circumstances and an emotional life that I feel is taken for granted in some of the classics when characters are treated as devices. This is a smartly written show, and Jessica Pohly gives a visceral and affecting performance. One of my favorite things about fringe festival is that it turns the seeming constraint of minimalism into a blessing, giving the audience an opportunity to really exist with the actors and their work even more so than you would watching an elaborately designed stage production. Go see!
