The Love of the Nightingale
By Timberlake Wertenbaker
Directed by Sarah Hickler
Full of both tragedy and unexpected humor, this retelling of the Greek myth of Philomele and her sister Procne demands the importance of speaking truth to power. A horrific cycle of violence begins before hope can finally be delivered through magical, eternal transformation.
