    Faced with an impoverished, war-ravaged country the new president of Thebes surrounds herself with a Cabinet of sensible women and promises peace. But without the aid of vastly wealthy Athens and its swaggering leader, she doesn’t stand a chance.

    Set in the modern day, but inspired by ancient myth, Moira Buffini’s new play explores head-on the cost of democracy in the aftermath of war.
