Social commentary and satire with parallels to today, told through fantasy or absurdism, will be the focus of Promethean Theatre Ensemble’s 2017-18 season.

The company’s twelfth season will open in October, with Jose Rivera’s Marisol – an absurdist comedy in which a young New York City woman of Puerto Rican descent finds herself immersed in a battle led by angels to save the universe.

In February, The Madwoman of Chaillot reveals a plot by a group of corrupt business executives who are planning to dig up the streets of Paris so they can pump oil that they believe lies beneath.

BLISS (or Emily Post is Dead!) is set in 1960 in North Orange, NJ. Clytemnestra and Medea are now housewives with a pill addiction, and Antigone is the teenage girl next door who is in love with a black boy.
