The Importance of Waiting for the Eagle
Written by Robert Hawkes
Directed by Susan Soltis
The Eagle, agent of Zeus’ wrath, comes daily to punish Prometheus for giving humankind the secret of making fire. Despite its grisly nature, their routine has developed into a fruitful if uneasy friendship-and an opportunity to ask hard questions about the nature of deity and humanity.
Robert Hawkes is a retired schoolteacher. He has acted at theatres all over the Cleveland area. The Importance of Waiting for the Eagle is his first completed work of fiction since he delivered himself of a lengthy novel in his freshman year at college. That text is now lost, thank goodness.
