ALCESTIS
This September, IRRATIONAL ROBOT BUREAU, in collaboration with KTO PRODUCTIONS, presents a new, original adaptation of ALCESTIS by the Classic Greek tragedian Euripides!

The ancient play enacts the myth of Admetus and Alcestis, King and Queen of Pherae, who become participants in the dealings of deities and, consequently, are emblazoned by the divine fire.

With the aid of a powerful god, the King is granted the ability to circumvent Deaths designs on him... but only if another will offer up his or her own mortal existence. When no one else can be found, the Queen Alcestis steps forward, thereby igniting the flames of a passionate struggle for identity, soul, ecstasy and agency... and for the assurance of choosing how we live and how we die.

Adapted & Directed by Adrian D Cameron

--

Since its inception in 2011, IRRATIONAL ROBOT BUREAU has committed itself to presenting uncommon productions that take the basic schematics of theater and performance and create events without analogue. The IRB is dedicated to presenting devised, developmental or experimental pieces, exploring classic/modern dynamics, theater-as-event, and other performance work not defined by institutional parameters.

KTO PRODUCTIONS was formed to allow artists to stretch beyond their comfort zones and to create and perform projects they are passionate about. Past shows include our inaugural production of Conor McPhersons The Weir (2011), Marsha Normans 1983 Pulitzer prizewinning drama 'night mother (2012), Gardner McKays romantic drama Sea Marks (2013),  [;;;BOXED.];;; (2014), coproduction with LungFish Productions, STAGEright Theatre, Confrontational Theatre, Clutch Theatre, Bradetta DoyleVines, Dan Davidson and Emily Harvey, Brian Friel's drama Molly Sweeney  (2015), and John Kolvenbach's comedy "Love Song" (2016).
