'The Rope'

The Rope (rõp): (n) 1. An implement by which tug-of-war is played, a tool for struggle. 2. A modern update of the Roman play, "The Rope" follows Plesidippus as he tries to free the girl he loves, Palaestra, from the pirate pimp Labrax and his transgender parrot Hedonagee. Like its ancient counterpart, this play is dirty, racy and calls into question gender and power roles.
