Ovid's transformation myths, Metamorphoses, by Mary Zimmerman, subtly mixes the ancient stories of pathos and tragedy with contemporary language, humor, and thought, all enacted in and around a large pool of water in the center of the stage.
The themes of love, the inevitability of change, and the human ability to adapt to change are timeless, as is amply demonstrated by the sometimes eerie closeness of a vignette to the original lines from Ovid, which still manage to resonate with modern viewers, says Library Journal.
The college's most fluent players anchor the cast: Lorna Dopson, Nate Wasson, Destin Bass. Professor Don Hooper designed the pool.
