DIRECTING THESIS | THE RIVERSIDE THEATRE
Actors, artists, musicians and dancers re-imagine The Screens, “a poetic combustion so strong and dense it will illuminate the world of the dead." Welcome
to a world in which becoming a hero is the worst of all fates and betrayal the ultimate
triumph. A sharply humorous exorcism of today’s taboos seen through Genet's subversive glee.
