THe Last Allegiance
(5m, 1f) Adapted from a section of the Persian epic, the Book of Kings, The Last Allegiance recounts the story of Prince Esfandiyar's final adventure. At the behest of his father, the King Goshtasp, Esfandiyar must confront the ancient hero, Rostam, and, an unutterable shame, Esfandiyar must bind his feet in chains. This full-length play begs the question: What are the consequences of unwavering loyalty to the laws of a bad leader?
THE LAST ALLEGIANCE is on the New Play Exchange.
The LAST ALLEGIANCE was part of the Gulfshore Playhouse's New Works Festival in 2016, and had a workshop reading at Spooky Action Theater in September 2014.
