THE RAPE OF THE SABINE WOMEN BY GRACE B. MATTHIAS by Michael Y. Crowley
directed by Christy Montour-Larson
This is a story of opposites. Boys and girls. Lawyers and counselors. Football and art. Sober and drunk. Yes and no. Jeff and Bobby are stars of the gridiron, ready to lead the Springfield High Romans to Homecoming victory. But standing in front of the end zone is Grace B. Matthias, who has accused the two football heroes of rape. Michael Yates Crowley's fast-paced, in-your-face comedy of truth and deception uses the myths of the Roman Empire to explore what it means to love--and turn your back on--someone.
