Hercules Furens - The Madness of Hercules

The Company :
Not Man Apart - Physical Theatre Ensemble

The Production :
HERCULES FURENS {The Madness of Hercules}
Considered one of the finest tragedies of the Roman philosopher and playwright Seneca, Hercules Furens portrays one of the most bitter and grotesque legends of this half-mortal son of Zeus, Hercules' maddened slaughter of his own innocent wife and children. This athletic adaptation performed by the Not Man Apart Ensemble asks, how does a man survive his own unforgivable crimes?

The Action follows the journey of Hercules, Jupiter's son, through his famous Labours and into his madness when he returns home from battle, induced by the Goddess Juno (Jupiter's Wife).  Hercules Furens was never produced but only read in Seneca's lifetime, it is considered one of the first plays written that addresses the notion of PTSD of soldiers in battle.  

Not Man Apart was originally commissioned in 2011 by The Getty Villa to adapt and stage this rarely done Roman Tragedy in a workshop performance, this production at the Miles Playhouse will be the fully completed World Premiere of Hercules Furens.
