by Ellen McLaughlin
Written by playwright Ellen McLaughlin, Mercury’s Footpath is a hauntingly beautiful anti-war play following the relationship between Protesilaus, the first Greek to die in the Trojan War, and his wife, Laodamia. Ten years after his death Laodamia asks Mercury, God of Beginnings and Endings, to bring her husband back. The couple’s story is poignantly interwoven with that of Telefteos, the last Greek to die in the war, and his wife, Kallisto.
Mercury’s Footpath, directed by Samantha White, explores themes of loss, remembrance, and love across life and death.
