Описание

A Feast in Place of War, a play, based on the book of the same name published in Moscow in 2013. The play is set 12,000 years BCE on the sacred Mount Meru, where the classical Greco-Roman gods have gathered to end their protracted feud with the Titans once and for all. However, not even the gods can make everything go as they want, and Zeus is forced to replace the Council of Gods with a feast, as the Titans haven’t shown up for the talks. The supreme deity has announced a ball, but the gods aren’t exactly falling over themselves to attend this, either. His beloved children Athena, Aphrodite and Apollo don’t come, and there is no sign of Mother Gaia, who is trying to prepare an elixir of immortality for her earthly progeny while the others feast. As the action unfolds, we see the gods for who they really are, with all their squabbles, scheming and psychological games. Zeus likes to think that he’s in charge, but how much does the Thunderer really know about what’s going on behind his back? He’s declared the Earth’s ancient inhabitants “withered branches of the tree of life”, but Mother Gaia is determined to save them from destruction—and Hera, the goddess of women and marriage, is equally determined to stop her. But how will Zeus react when he finds out that his own wife hasn’t informed him of her cunning plan?
