The eagle charged with eating Prometheus’s liver each day is growing weary of the routine. But when Heracles shows up to free the titan, the two unlikely friends are forced to decide whether to take a risk on a new life or stick with what they know.
“A playful take on the Greek myth of Prometheus that surprisingly speaks to us today about friendship. It makes you think about the beauty of predictability and routines of friendship. This would be a hit at any festival on myths (esp Greek myths) or any comedy showcase. This is a perfect comedy with the liveliness of a David Ives short play. The hugging in this play -- it's so sweet!!! This would be a fun, challenging play for beginning design and costume designers in high school and college.” — Asher Wyndham
“This play is loaded with wit! Such a creative idea, I never even considered the poor bird who Zeus had also inadvertently condemned and its relationship with Prometheus. A uniquely endearing show that is so easy to imagine playing out on stage.” — Ryan Bultrowicz
