Under The Gods’ Golden Cleats
a new play by Rachel Bublitz
The legend of Achilles mashed with Texas football; a world where cheerleaders are slaves and players are encouraged to kill members of the opposing team.

Rachel Bublitz’s play will mash up Achilles’ story in the Trojan War with the football culture of modern day Texas, creating a brand new world where cheerleaders are property, and the Gods preside over the games. Achilles, a young football legend, is the number one ranked player in the country. When the Trojans kidnap their precious bovine mascot, Helen, Achilles chooses to die young and glorious rather than grow old and lose his talents.
No advance ticket sales, $10 (CASH ONLY!) at the door. I have never been more excited or more proud of a play I’ve written. I hope that you make it out.
