Directed by Tre Garrett

Hip-hop, doo-wop, 1970s funk, gospel, the blues and R&B combine in this reworking by Meadows Artist-in-Residence Will Power of Aeschylus’s Seven Against Thebes. Set in today’s urban America and directed by guest artist Tre Garrett, artistic director of Ft. Worth’s Jubilee Theatre, The Seven follows the struggles of the sons of Oedipus as they vie for the throne of Thebes. Of his earlier piece FLOW, The New York Times said, “Will Power is treading in new territory, experimenting with tools that are new to the theatre. … What’s most impressive is that you can see clearly through the door it is opening to a storehouse of new possibilities.”
