Written by Amelio Garcia, Directed by William Hodgson, Prod. by Oakland Theater Project. A WORLD PREMIERE

Ancient myth and the post-modern present collide in the genre-bending queer love story written by Amelio Garcia, co-conceived by OTP’s William Hodgson and Lisa Ramirez and inspired by Anne Carson’s novel Autobiography of Red: A Novel in Verse, and directed by William Hodgson.

In Greek myth, Geryon is a triple-bodied, red-winged monster, slayed by Herakles (Hercules) in one of his mythical labors. In Carson’s telling, however, “Geryon is a young boy who is also a winged red monster who begins an autobiography at age five.” Later in life, Geryon falls in love with Herakles.

Hailed by the New York Times Book Review as “a profound love story… sensuous and funny, poignant, musical and tender,” this novel and poem is a “portrait of an artist coming to terms with the fantastic accident of who he is.”
