Originally created as a street theatre piece, Calliope was expanded to a full length play for a long and successful run in Boston. (A touching and very amusing portrait of character…You will recognize them all from some personal fantasy. – Pat Harper , WBZ TV) Several more productions have followed including runs in New York, Charleston, and Vermont. The play was inspired by a particular moment in the film The King of Hearts when six vulnerable and desperate characters stumble upon the fantasies of their dreams and live them out in front of an audience. Calliope has delighted hundreds of audiences.
