This is Not a Torture or an Engine

A play with soundscapes
Cast: 7 actors [4M, 3F]
Length: 75 minutes

A loose adaptation of the Pandora and Prometheus myths with candles, kidnappings, bureaucratic wait lists, and torture by snowball. A 3-voice chorus provides ongoing soundscapes throughout. The piece is written out to read like a musical score.
