Content Note: Metamorphoses contains adult themes, including incest and grief, as well as partial nudity and sexual situations.

Metamorphoses is a collection of Greek myths woven together into a play about the transformational power of love. It was adapted by Mary Zimmerman from David R. Slavitt's translation of Ovid's Metamorphoses. The stories told in this play include that of Midas, Eros & Psyche, Orpheus & Eurydice, Phaeton, and Narcissus, as well as other, less familiar tales. It is a powerful, funny, sad, romantic, profound and potentially transformative theatrical experience.

About the Director: Elizabeth Hunter is the founding Artistic Director of Theatre@First and has directed more than a dozen projects here, including both the 2004 and 2014 versions of Rosencrantz & Guildenstern Are Dead. She most recently appeared on our stage as Hecuba in Trojan Women.
