ABOUT THE SHOW | Kevin Connell leads the TWAS Classical Actors of Color as they take you to an unidentified country in 18th century Europe, where an usurper's daughter has inherited the throne and feels guilty about her family's crimes. She learns that the rightful heir, Agis, exists but has been taught to hate her and reject all love. She falls in love with him at first sight, but he is kept in
seclusion by a brother and sister to
protect him from her. To get close enough to
Agis, she must embark on a series of
bribes, deceptions, and seductions. Don’t
miss Project 1 of our international affair.
