Good news: you actually can bring the love of your life back from the dead. Bad news: breakfast the next morning is really awkward. When it comes to the unexpected resurrection of his beloved wife Alcestis, King Admetos learns the hard way that the aftermath of a miracle ain't as peachy as we might assume.
From the team behind Gluten! at 59E59 Theaters comes this reinvention of a classic Ancient Greek play with a sharply contemporary celebration of its powerful heroine returning home to settle the score.
