    A civil war has ended. Will there be peace or new rebellion? Each chorus member argues the side of one of the characters, hoping to bring peace to the war-torn land. Each individual faces the choice: should I do what I feel is right or stay silent and safe? This adaptation can be set anywhere there is civil strife—ancient Greece, modern America, a medieval castle, the inner city, the future, any time and place that speaks to you.
