The Rage of Achilles

Black Box Theater (3401 Filbert Street

Westphal College of Media Arts and Design

Drexel University

In the tenth year of the war of the ILIAD, two Greek spies begin to lose control of the comfortable and profitable detente they've mentained with their Trojan counterpart. When the plague, a chorus of waking dead, an insecure herald, and a rage-obsessed Achilles begin to crowd their comfortable no man's land, the spies find deciding if they can justify murder for profit, or whether compassion and truth can ever find a place in a millieu dominated by destruction. As part of their Cool Classics series this summer, Philly's Commonwealth Classic Theatre Company (CCTC) will present the new original play RAGE OF ACHILLES, directed by Drexel adjunct Theatre professor Damon Bonetti. RAGE was written by CCTC founding member Paul Parente and features Barrymore-Award winning actress Charlotte Northeast.
