What happens to old gods when no one believes in them anymore? The search for gainful supernatural employment and the philosophy of spirituality are each at the heart of Three Gods, a heavenly funny farce that looks at one of the most radical shifts in Western civilization and philosophy – Christianity. The Gods of Mount Olympus are in trouble; They don’t have many worshippers left, they can’t get their thunderbolts to work, and suddenly they’re in the middle of a hostile takeover and they have forty-eight hours to vacate the premises. Set in a bar on Mount Olympus over Easter weekend, this ridiculously tender look at the personalities of deities explores the question of what it means to exist in a world that no longer has faith in you.
“This is an idea that has been stewing around in my head for a long time, and it’s a funny and touching way to explore some of the deepest questions we as a species ask ourselves. The Greek pantheon of gods and goddesses are wonderfully rich characters with lots of good, bad, and overall human qualities that make them perfect for the stage.”
