This one-act musical was written as a final project for a course in the history of theatreat Cornell University during Mark’s undergraduate studies. It based on one of the “mimes” of Herondas, short theatrical pieces written to be performed as one-person street shows in ancient Greece. Mimes in general were centered around the notion of imitating a situation or person and often had the performer playing multiple roles. Herondas in particular focused on representing character in his pieces. In this mime, a matchmaker attempts to convince a housewife to leave her husband.
There are currently no viable recordings available.
