11th Hour Theatre Company, currently in residence at the University of the Arts, will collaborate on a workshop of "Persephone." 11th Hour’s own Kate Galvin directs this exciting concert version of the Persephone myth in musical form. Galvin expressed that, "The 11th Hour team is happy to be working with the talented students at UArts on developing this new musical. This workshop offers the students a unique opportunity to participate in the evolution of a piece from the very beginning. No other actors will have put their stamp these roles yet – the UArts cast will truly get to help create the show from the ground up!"

When Persephone is kidnapped by Hades, she isn’t allowed to return to Earth. Her mother bargains with Hades to allow her to visit for half the year. Persephone becomes a Rebellious Daughter who falls in love with a Bad Boy. Her mother has to learn to let go.
