Von Kleist's classic work explores the especially modern theme of the incompatibility of love and vocation. Penthesilea and the Amazons interrupt the Trojan War intending to take male captives, only to have Penthesilea and Achilles fall in love—a love that is as intense as it is forbidden. Actors Ensemble and Inferno Theatre collaborate to bring this famous work to the classic John Hinkel Park Amphitheatre in a free production that employs movement and music to enhance this classic text.
