Prometheus/Redux | Festival Unbound

Oct 7, 2019

WDIY's Youth Media Program students look at the world premiere of “Prometheus/Redux” by Touchstone Theatre. This original play was commissioned for Festival Unbound and written by Gerard Stropnicky.

Marking the 20th anniversary of Bethlehem Steel’s closing, and the seminal work “Steelbound” from our 1999 “Steel Festival”, “Prometheus/Redux” asks us how we define ourselves in the face of an ever-changing, ever more interconnected world. No longer “bound” to the steel industry, what has become of the proud steel-worker Prometheus, and our community, 20 years later?
