The Bethlem Project- SteelBound

"Steelbound" was an adaptation of Aeschylus' "Prometheus Bound," a Greek tragedy in which Prometheus stands for human progress against the forces of nature. In the work, Bill George, Touchstone co-founder and ensemble member, played a steelworker named Prometheus. Written by Alison Carey of Cornerstone Theater of Los Angeles and inspired by stories gathered from the community, "Steelbound" featured a cast of more than 50, including former steelworkers and their families and neighbors, and was produced in the foundry of the closed steel plant in south Bethlehem.

"Prometheus/Redux" is sponsored by Air Products, the Lehigh Valley Charter High School for the Arts, WDIY 88.1 and PBS 39.
