TheatreRUN invites you to …

The Pasolini Project

“Man’s only greatness lies in his tragedy.” -Pier Paolo Pasolini

Join us in a presentation of excerpts from our play-in-development.
The Pasolini Project is based on Pier Paolo Pasolini’s 1969 tragedy Pylades.

Pasolini’s ecstatic poetry mobilizes the language of Greek tragedy to stage a dramatic debate on democracy and revolution. The play, Pasolini’s relentless critique of Italian culture and politics of the 1960’s, speaks directly to the turbulent socio-political climate of our times.
