This one-act comedy retells the myth in which Hades, god of death, kidnaps Persephone, goddess of life and spring. But while Persephone is usually presented as the sad-eyed queen of the underworld, here she is a happy breath of spring that makes life glitter wherever she is—even in Hades. In addition to the comic conflicts surrounding the situation, however, there is a deeper theme of the relation of life and death. This coupling is significant, since life and death are in fact inseparable, inevitably linked together. In this insoluble link there is also a hint of the nature of real love. Learn More
