HADEON

Hadeon is a twisted new tragicomedy by Evan Crommett and Aleah Black about the way we create myths, gods, and women.  The play takes place within a fantastical world, influenced in equal parts by Greek mythology, Shakespearean plays, and the aesthetic of the 1950s of post-war America. The arc of the play traces the actions of King Argos and his court and the creation of a new god, Hadeon. In addition to investigating themes of love and power, the play also explores cultural taboos like class and sexual liberation. It is a new parody and investigation of an old cliché: what happens when woman is literally made to serve man. 

 
"Gods ain’t nothin’ but rubble and dust now."

"Tell me, oh king, the plans for my creation? They can not touch me? I can not touch you? Am I to be soft and giving and witless like a little beast that sleeps at the foot of your bed? Wipe me back out of existence.
I am the Queen!"
