Prometheus sure is the starkest and strangest of the vintage Greek tragedies, a play during which god and guy are awarded as appreciably, irreconcilably at odds. It starts off with the surprise of hammer blows because the Titan Prometheus is shackled to a rock within the Caucasus. this is often his punishment for giving the present of fireside to humankind and for thwarting Zeus's determination to exterminate the human race. Prometheus's discomfort is unceasing, yet he refuses to recant his dedication to humanity, to whom he has additionally introduced the information of writing, arithmetic, drugs, and structure. He tricks that he is aware how Zeus can be introduced low sooner or later, but if Hermes calls for that Prometheus reveal his mystery, he refuses and is distributed spinning into the abyss by way of a divine thunderbolt.

To whom does humanity search for suggestions: to the ideal deity or to the insurgent Titan? What legislation controls the cosmos?

Example text

Once you started to complain about your wages and your working conditions, you were promptly told, if you don’t like it there’s a hundred Catholics out in the street that will take your job tomorrow. (Stevenson, 1996, p. 76) These experiences produced powerful and defensive communal relationships and belief systems. The image of fanatical neo-Marxist ideologues wielding Kalshnikovs in the cause of Connolly and Irish Freedom that came to characterise the IRA, was a myth. For the most part the paramilitaries on both sides were motivated by more down to earth, immediate and communal necessities.

The struggle, then, was conceived as a dual one, embracing church and state. Liberation theology was inseparable from the nationalist project. The iconography of the republican movement reflected this intersection of armed struggle and radical theology. Bobby Sands, the Hunger Striker, depicted on murals with his unkempt beard and long hair, wrapped in a stained blanket and surrounded by brutal guards, was readily taken for the suffering Christ of Hope.

But it was an issue. And I thought that the echoes in Eh Joe, the language in Eh Joe, we could tinker a bit with that. (Reid, 1998) It is easy to see how the play resonated with the group and the community. It was a community surrounded by forts and ‘listening posts’. Helicopters hovered over it twenty-four hours a day, taking photographs and recording conversations. M15 and M16 and Special Branch agents had infiltrated its organisations. It was riddled with agent provocateurs and informers. In such a climate Beckett’s intensely private, internal hell of betrayal became for Belfast Community Theatre a possible metaphor for a generalised condition: that of the community as undifferentiated suspect.
