We're all familiar with the story of Phèdre, the tragic young queen plunged into the throes of her incestuous passion for her stepson Hippolyte. But let's imagine for a moment that Phèdre was a depressed forty-something with a passion for lyrical flights of fancy, Hippolyte a pimply teenager in the throes of a crisis, Theseus a misogynistic boxer, Aricie a young woman with a complex about her weight, and Oenone a modern-day confidante versed in psychoanalysis. Imagine all these characters, dressed in modern togas, speaking in contemporary alexandrines where "passion" rhymes with "depression" and "mother-in-law" with "galley", in a setting streaked with Greek columns.
