DIONYSIA: A Celebration of Greek Culture at the George Washington Masonic Memorial Theatre

What ancient comedy and modern society have in common? Certainly social values have changed and audiences will view the "morals" of the play through a modern lens, but perhaps the personal interactions, individuals’ desires, and comedic situation will still speak to us. We are not trying to overlay a post-modern commentary on the values espoused in the play, but a certain amount of distance from the setting and culture is inevitable. It is in the characters and their relationships that a modern audience will find a timeless connection.
