Review by DAVID MACDOWELL BLUE

June 24, 2017

What I liked

A re-imagination of myth, diving deeper into the ideas of the story. Fantastic!

What I didn't like

Well, the actress playing the title character did a very good job. The actor playing Hades did not quite gel with the material—he is good, to be sure. I can easily see him as Stanley Kowalsky for example in STREETCAR, but his firmly naturalistic style didn’t work with this story or language. Mind you, this is a subtle point.
My real problem is that I think it needs another ten minutes or so.

My overall impression

I am a huge sucker for mythology of all kind, and delving deeper into the ideas of same. So this is just candy for my imagination! I do think it needs some work, though. I wanted a longer piece—not that much longer but some.

In Conclusion:

They have it all: cash, charm, and connections. Playing by different rules. So when a boy is found dead and two more stand to hang, justice is under the microscope and we have to ask: how did we get here, where are we going and do we have a choice?
