Author(s): José Watanabe, translated by Cristina Pérez Díaz Company: The Asylum Theatre of Las Vegas

“You seek assent from the world of the tyrant, I’ll go after the favour of the gods.”

As the sun rises on Thebes in the aftermath of civil war, the new king denies burial rights to the losing brother; an act of tyranny with devastating consequences.

A radical remaking of Sophocles’ ancient Greek parable brought to life by one woman, this play by Peruvian poet José Watanabe reflects the struggle for humanity to transcend beyond political violence amid oppression that may lead to silence, but does not bring peace.
