Three Classics combines the modern with the mythic in three adaptations that view classic stories through the lens of a post-modern, urban non-landscape. In (Anti)gone, the aftermath of war is explored in a world of shopping malls, highways, and airports. Racine's Phaedra is combined with Hitchcock, Iggy Pop, Mixed Martial Arts, and Slavoj Zizek in In His Bold Gaze, My Ruin is Writ Large. The final play, Prometheus Rendered, is an examination of the Prometheus myth using the torture techniques employed by U.S. interrogators at Guantanamo Bay. Read More

    "Jason Grote is one of a generation of brainy new American dramatists who understand that to reach new audiences, political theater needs to move beyond moral indignation and outrage, past spoon-feeding an attitude. One key to going forward is looking backward into literature, fable and allegory."
