Awaken begins by exploring Plato’s concept of the soul mate, drawing upon ancient mythology. Cupid and Psyche are cruelly torn apart by the mighty Jupiter, King of the Gods, who feels threatened by the growing strength of mankind. Psyche must undergo a series of gruelling tasks, set out by Cupid’s mother Venus, in order to prove her love. As the piece unfolds, Cupid and Psyche’s relationship is challenged by the complications between the mortal world and the gods. Cupid and Psyche’s son, half mortal, half god, delves into a world of story books brought to life by his imagination in order to escape the chaos of his feuding parents.
Novato Theatre Company was an exciting and new addition to Novato Productions for 2012. Their dedication to creativity means that all of their material is original, devised by the company under the guidance of the Artistic Directors.
