Opening AUGUST 2:
Or, by LIZ DUFFY ADAMS.
At capitol hill arts workshop.
Theatre Prometheus is proud to present this production of Or, by Liz Duffy Adams, directed by Chelsea Radigan.
Or, is a whirlwind day in the life of Aphra Behn, England’s first female professional playwright… and a spy. Over the course of one day in the late 1660s, Aphra finds herself jumping from a debtors’ prison cell to writing on a tight deadline… all the while inveigled in an increasing number of complex relationships with personal, professional, and political matters all at stake.
This unapologetically queer, rollicking comedy will have you wondering why you never learned about this fascinating figure in history. #WhoIsAphraBehn?
We are theatre prometheus
We tell the stories that too often go untold and we reach audiences too often overlooked by larger companies. From an unflinching one-woman take on Joan of Arc and our recent all-woman production of Macbeth, to our critically-acclaimed Good Kids and our queered Cymbeline, we are dedicated to producing work that highlights marginalized narratives.
"Full of creativity and energy,
Theatre Prometheus is a group
you do not want to miss!"
