'Admetos, It's time to stop being a punk'
-Daisha Wilson as Juanita Wade
The 2012 film version of DCCWW's 2007 adaptation of Euripides happy-ending tragedy, Alcestis (438 BCE).
King Admetos has the opportunity to prevent his own death, but only if someone willingly dies in his place, but nobody in the kingdom is willing. Nobody, that is, but his loving wife, Queen Alcestis.
Written by Hart middle schoolers in 2007, this production features the middle schoolers of 2012 in the film version. The original writers and performers of the script are now high school graduates, many of whom still return regularly to DC Creative Writing Workshop, to mentor the new generation.
Part of a year-long film project reviving three favorite plays of DCCWW's first 9 years, when the plays were originally performed exclusively on stage.
