Overview

Influence: A Play by Janet A Munsil

" The Gods of Greece must be pleased. A delicious trip into history . . . I can't wait for the day that Janet Munsil's Influence will extend across the seas to be presented where it's set, in London." - Vancouver Sun

"Expansive, witty, intelligent and moving. A comment from a teenager after the show sums everything up perfectly: "It was like an explosion of awesomeness in my brain." Totally." - Plank Magazine

In 1817, a battle of gods and mortals rages in the halls of the British Museum, when ebullient history painter Benjamin Robert Haydon takes his protégé, John Keats, to view the statues of the Parthenon. As Haydon tries to awaken his young friend's appreciation of these treasures of antiquity - the goddess Pallas Athena arrives to reclaim them.
