Capricious gods, forbidden love, false prophets, true seers, ancient kings, bandit queens, switched genders, eyes plucked out in fistfuls and a healthy dose of gallows humor. Is the future of mankind a comedy or a tragedy?

  Review Round-Up

DC Metro Theater Arts - Recommended

"... The opening scene of We Tiresias poses what appears to be a simple question: What if you could text a couple of your former selves and meet them for a drink? What would you talk about? What would you wear? It goes without saying that most of us would do it if we could, just as most of us revisit places where we used to live to look for remnants. Most of us can think of former selves that we still like, and we suppose their company would be a pleasure for a while."

Mark Dewey


MD Theatre Guide - Somewhat Recommended

"...Stephen Spotswood's We Tiresias, presented at the Forum Theatre, is a lyrical reimagining of a classic Greek character. Three actors portray the blind seer at three different stages of his life. While the concept is intriguing, the production feels more like an exercise in style than a compelling character study."
