Go behind the scenes with members of the cast and creative team who brought this tale of The Trojan War to life.
Experience with Audio Description
17 years to write. Six months to rehearse. 10 plays to recount the Trojan War. One documentary that captured it all.
Twenty years ago, the DCPA Theatre Company and Royal Shakespeare Company embarked upon the most ambitious play ever to have been attempted— TANTALUS. Now a part of theatrical history, you are invited to peer into the creation of this world premiere. Join us for a virtual viewing party of TANTALUS: Behind the Mask, a two-and-a-half hour documentary that captured all the determination, drama, and artistry that led to this highly acclaimed and unforgettable theatrical experience.
Registrants will receive two reminder emails — one day before and one hour before the event — with the link to join the watch party on YouTube. During the watch party, viewers may submit questions to the creative team to be answered in a Q&A at a later date.
If you are in a position to do so, please consider adding on a donation during registration to support our $4 million Recovery Fund.
