Based on Greek mythology, the ensemble play Metamorphoses takes Ovid’s classic transformation stories and sets them to contemporary language. The play uses the idea of love through the medium of water to examine how and why human beings change, shown through the transformation of characters such as King Midas, Orpheus, Eurydice and many others.
The element of water literally takes center stage in this production, featuring a 10’ x 20’ pool built onstage as part of the set. The 31 student actors spend time in the water during their scenes, using it to symbolize the transformation of their characters.
The central idea of Metamorphoses can be defined as the changing power of love. Playwright Mary Zimmerman explains that the play "makes it easy to enter the heart and to believe in greater change as well... that we all can transform."
