A feminist retelling of the Ovidian myth of Procne, Philomela, and Tereus. Wertenbaker did a wonderful job with developing the themes of silence, truth, love, and justice. Surprisingly, she even managed to portray Tereus initially as a good, misguided man. Of course, by the end you will hate him, as is proper : ) And I found myself relating heavily to Procne and Philomela (of course, that could just be me personally); their sisterly dynamic reminded me very much of my own sister and me, so of course, I hated Tereus all the more for what he did to Philomela. And more importantly, this is a Greek myth that sorely needed a modern retelling. Ovid's version is beautiful (everything he touches is beautiful), but it relied too heavily on the sexualization of violence and sensationalism. This play was a hard read, but I loved it so much!
