Show Description:

Midas is ancient history, his gold mines are crumbling, and few even remember his name, but his legacy remains. How do people make sense of their polluted world? What will everyone choose to do with what is left? The Death of Midas is an adaptation; a retelling of The Purple Flower by Marita Bonner and the story of King Midas and his power to turn everything into gold. There is mythology, music, messiness, and play. We hope you join us for the world premiere!
