LETO LEGEND is a comedy about contemporary and mythical super heroines. In the contemporary world, Charlie is a single ‘lacrosse’ mom striving to balance new found success as a comic book creator with the demands of parenthood. In the mythical universe, Leto, a Titan goddess and mother to Artemis and Apollo, also deals with the dual demands of work and family. The play tackles how to navigate a work, artistic and family life and deal with interior and exterior judgement.
