In a world of passion and violence, two sisters are driven to do the unimaginable.

Against a backdrop of war, two loving sisters are separated by a royal marriage and a vast ocean.  Ever curious about the world, young Philomele bravely takes a voyage on the high seas in hopes of a reunion. While the stars may guide the ship’s course, danger is in the air.  Our heroine must use her creativity to reveal the truth. Olivier Award-winning playwright Timberlake Wertenbaker adapts Ovid’s mythical tale about family loyalty, desire and betrayal. With Live Music by Helen Hayes Award Winner Tom Teasley.
