The Thing I Hold (July 25 & 26) by Harrison David Rivers, directed by Ismael Lara, Jr.

The Thing I Hold is a modern re-telling of Euripides’ Greek classic, Alcestis, the story of a woman who chooses to sacrifice herself to death in place of her ill-fated husband. In the process, she both frees herself and becomes love personified, inviting us all to be love. Regional Premiere.
