Written by Wayne Shaw

Ludicrous Theatre closes it’s third season with an original work based upon the ancient myth. Set in Hollywood in contemporary times, Hippolytus tells the story of a famous Hollywood couple, Theseus, the most popular movie star and Phaedra his wife, the most sought after screenwriter.

Phaedra’s sexual obsession with her stepson Hippolytus, Theseus’ pedophilia all coupled with a right wing Baptist preacher, an immoral studio exec and a thought provoking daughter collide in this disturbing exploration of passion and power run amok.
