A series of vicious civil wars has ended. A small city state half way across the world rebuilds itself in the ashes. The victorious King exiles his rival to the throne, his own brother, to a remote land far from the kingdom. The Queen, lover of her husband's brother, raises in his absence the 3 young daughters he abandoned on his journey as she represses the love she harbours for the banished prince. The blind and aged priest, seer to the king, prophesies unhappy times ahead. Blush of Dogs
is a play about conflicting freedoms and the desire to break repressive cycles. Inspired by contemporary life and adapted from the myth of Thyestes, private struggles clash in the shadows of intense public scrutiny.Author Roland Reynolds.
