by Samuel Edwards, directed by Ezekiel Baskin, is based on a myth from Ovid's Metamorphoses, which centers on Caeneus, a transgender male character. Caeneus is granted a wish by Poseidon to transform how people perceive his gender, in order to have it be more in line with his internal reality. He joins Jason's ship The Argo in pursuit of becoming a hero, as he has always dreamed. Things end up, however, being not quite what he expected. Throughout the play, Caeneus seeks to make sense of his own transformation, identity, and relationships, as he grapples with the fact that what he thought was an impossible fantasy is now everyday reality.
Please be advised this play contains suicidal themes, underlying themes of transphobia, and internalized homophobia.
