To gaze into her eyes would be to know all the secrets of the universe; rendering mankind into stone. The Mythologies of the triple goddess, as well as Medusa, continue to ripple through history to modern day culture, and mirror the human experience. Is her story complete? What has been left out, and why is the gorgon perpetuated as a monster for the modern world? A young man’s desperate choice, as well as self-acceptance, is at the heart of this re-telling, and collides within the mythological realm of FABLE; a world where gods and goddesses exist, and the matriarchy has become clandestine.

Content Warning: FABLE contains themes of violence; although not seen, rape will be discussed within the story.

TDPS workshops are designed as advanced study experiences, providing laboratories for nascent work. They are an opportunity for student writers, directors, and performers to develop ideas and get them on their feet. Workshops focus on language and performance with minimal technical production.
