SIX SEEDS: The Persephone Project by Annie G. Levy
In response to our call for submissions, we present Annie G. Levy’s SIX SEEDS; her play will be workshopped and presented as a staged reading in early January.
A young woman finds herself trapped in a marriage she didn’t agree to. Though she longs to escape back to the comfortable protection of her mother, she also yearns for freedom from the safety and boundaries of childhood. As she tells her story, a tension develops—a pull between innocence and experience. Is she merely a victim, the first Stockholm Syndrome case? Or does she secretly revel in her new life as wife to Hades and Queen of the Underworld?
SIX SEEDS: The Persephone Project is intimate and epic, a beautiful retelling of a classic story that continues to deeply influence our modern world.
