For those steeped in Greek mythology, this outing with the three Tiresias figures is a special treat, but the play also works with a general audience. In just about an hour (with no intermission), three talented actors bring to life this tormented and sublime persona. They provide a fascinating backstory for the blind prophet we know best from the Oedipus plays.

Capricious gods, forbidden love, false prophets, true seers, ancient kings, bandit queens, switched genders, eyes plucked out in fistfuls and a healthy dose of gallows humor. Is the future of mankind a comedy or a tragedy?
The show runs 1 hour, 10 minutes, with no intermission.
