Disgusted with the state of current entertainment, Dionysus, God of Wine and Theatre, decides that it’s time to retrieve Shakespeare from the underworld. Surely if the Bard were given a series on HBO, he’d be able to raise the level of discourse! Unfortunately, his plan to rescue Shakespeare goes horribly awry, as he’s captured by a chorus of reality-television-loving demon frogs. The frogs put the god on trial and threaten him with never-ending torment unless he brings more reality shows into the world. Adapted from Aristophanes’ classic satire, The Frogs is a hilarious and scathing look at highbrow and lowbrow art.
