Stronger Than Arms is a world premiere of a new adaptation of Aeschylus’ Seven Against Thebes, diving into the spiritual and political burdens placed on the women of Thebes. As the generational conflicts of territory and birthright ravage Theban society and the cities around them, the chorus of women is divided, revealing their individual conflicts, motivations, and allegiances. Our understanding of the events in Thebes are a swirling curation of history and myth, and Stronger Than Arms stirs the mixture into something truly revolutionary. Stemming from the line “Fear is stronger than arms,” the story points to the power of humanity’s worst enemy, unconquerable fear, and reveals that there could be something stronger - the willingness to change.
