BTE founding member emeritus Gerard Stropnicky wrote the play, “Prometheus/Redux”.
Touchstone Theatre presents the world premiere of “Prometheus/Redux”, an original play commissioned for Festival UnBound written by Gerard Stropnicky. Marking the 20th anniversary of Bethlehem Steel’s closing, and the seminal work “Steelbound” from our 1999 “Steel Festival”, “Prometheus/Redux” asks us how we define ourselves in the face of an ever-changing, ever more interconnected world. No longer “bound” to the steel industry, what has become of the proud steel-worker Prometheus, and our community, 20 years later?

Dive into the hidden history of Bethlehem’s birth— a Moravian Utopia? Multiculturalism and womens’ rights are sown into the soil of our remarkable egalitarian past. Hidden Seed shines light on our forebears’ lessons, and the treasures that grow from our roots.
