A god tortured by gods for having loved Man and condemned by Zeus for having offered them art and fire, Prometheus embodies disobedience and challenges established power. He is among the most cited figures in literature from Aeschylus onward, and in this play the Titan is opposed by a cast of divine lieutenants, among which are Hephaistos, Apollo, and Hermes. Because any such play is fundamentally political, the piece offers, according to playwright and director Olivier Py, a “lesson in insurrection”
