The Gorgon Sisters

The Gorgon Sisters

by Laramie Dean

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.

Shelly Riggs
Logan High School
This show is WONDERFUL. We loved the script, and the opportunities for creativity with the character design. Lighting and sound are really key to this script, and there are so many possibilities for properties and costumes as well. Highly recommended!
