Banville’s ‘Love in the Wars’ at Bard College — 12-20 July

Love in the Wars — John BanvilleWorld Premiere of Love in the Wars
A version of Heinrich von Kleist’s Penthesilea by John Banville
Directed by Ken Rus Schmoll


“I stood there, blinded by the sight of you,
And when you’d gone the form of you
remained, Emblazoned on my eyes.”
— Love in the Wars


Penthesilea, Queen of the Amazons, sets eyes on the hero Achilles, and the ferocity of her passion collides with his stubborn will, setting in motion a tragicomedy of love and misunderstanding that threatens to derail the course of history.
