The Department of Theatre and Dance  invites you to LIKE A BAT OUT OF HADES!

Welcome to Ombelico Mask Ensemble’s  latest experimental concoction: LIKE A BAT OUT OF HADES!  Fusing Commedia dell’Arte with ancient Greek tragedy and traditional Italian puppetry, this show is a ridiculous re-imagining of the Euripedes play ALCESTIS.

Admeto strikes a deal with the Fates to avoid going to Hades… someone must go in his place. His wife Alcestis thinks that Hades sounds like a lovely vacation getaway! But after she leaves Admeto has second thoughts. Enter his best friend Hercules promising to return Alcestis from the underworld but  Apollo and Death have other plans…
