The story is everything to Stheno, the oldest gorgon sister. And this story is a big one, a hero’s quest. And not some lame quest like the one Perseus went on for a girl.

Stheno wants to bring her sister Medusa back to life. It’s impossible, and everyone tells her so - Hades, Heracles, Athena… but for someone like Stheno, the impossible just takes a little longer.

A fabulous take on these Ancient Greek characters with lots of casting flexibility and suggested cuts for one-act competitions.
