King Admetos was granted by the Fates, persuaded by Apollo, the privilege of living on borrowed time, outlasting death.  Apollo is re-paying the gift of hospitality, offered by the King years ago. There is a catch -- Admetos must find someone to take his place when Death comes to claim him. 

Can King Admetos meet the challenge?

Should he be able to escape death?

The terrific cast features Sandra Manos * as Alcestis, Peter Manos* as King Admetos and Dan Flannery as Hercules. Also featured are Sean Manos, Tom Cullinan and Eli Manos, with an historical presentation by Kevin Cronin (* denotes membership in Actors' Equity, the professional stag actors union).
