This paper discusses the process of adapting an Ancient Greek myth into a modern stage play through a queer lens and with an understanding of the purpose of myth. From myth to story, I discuss how creative choices from character, to plot, to structure reflect a representation of myself, of my particular queer experience, and humanity as a whole.
