“Down in the face of God” - Livestream
Friday, March 5 2021
“Down in the face of God,” a post-apocalyptic mashup of Greek tragedies “The Bacchae'' and “Antigone,” is the first play in a trilogy written by up-and-coming playwright Tim J. Lord that is a radical reimagining of the Oedipus story. Set in modern-day southern Illinois, “Down in the face of God” takes the audience to a dystopian version of the real-life city of Thebes. Lord calls into question identity, religion, familial obligation and what is home. Is our story already determined? Or can we really escape our fate? Perhaps, if only we are brave enough to follow the signs.
