July 7- July 21 Georgia Shakespeare presents Metamorphoses:
Metamorphoses explores themes of forbidden love, unbridled greed, and thwarted ambition. An elderly couple questions whether the end of life means the end of love. A greedy father finds he’s gotten more than he wanted when everything he touched turns to gold. A son tries to emulate his father and nearly destroys the Earth. A fearful wife learns the transformative power of love. The characters in this play, adapted from Ovid’s original narrative poem, grapple with experiences that at first seem outlandish but upon closer examination are very much like ours. The ten deceptively simple stories in this lyrical play – which takes place around a gorgeous pool of water – reveal what it means to be human, and in love.

Parental Advisory: Partial nudity and explicit content
Tickets start at $15 with discounts available for seniors, students and active military.
