In this adaptation of Ovid's ancient Greek legend, Philomela's devotion to her beloved sister Procne launches her on a journey of terror and brutality as the sisters attempt to reunite across oceans. Olivier Award-winning playwright Timberlake Wertenbaker's lyrical text is rich with wit, economy and savage theatricality as it tells this tale of two sisters bound by love, violence and betrayal. Directed by Allison Arkell Stockman, this Constellation Theatre Company production features original live music by Tom Teasley. Learn More
