WCC students take on societal issues at Palikū Theatre

Polaroid Stories is a modern and gritty take on Ovid’s Metamorphoses, casting the heroes and gods of several Greek myths as street kids living on the edge of a desolate urban landscape.
Playwright Naomi Iizuka gives voices to the traditionally voiceless by merging outcasts of our urban society with mythological characters whose ephemeral, transient lives reflect the main themes of Ovid's Metamorphosis, on which many of the stories are based, the power of storytelling and transformation. In Polaroid Stories, Persephone (Queen of the Dead in Classical mythology) is a drug addict prostitute; Orpheus (who in Classical mythology is the greatest ever musician, capable of making rocks cry with the beauty of his music, and travels to hell to save his wife) obsessively stalks Eurydice. This darkly lyrical production also follows Ariadne who is hopelessly abandoned by a Skinhead boy (aka Oklahoma Boy, aka Pentheus, aka Theseus); Narcissus, who in Ovid’s tale falls in love with himself and becomes a flower, is a ‘Raver’ followed by Echo; D(ionysus) is a powerful drug dealer and G(Zeus) roams the streets searching for love and a good night's sleep.
