Based on Bomarzo, a novel by Mujica-Lainez, Stoneground
investigated the problem of evil personified by Giovanni Orsini,
Duke of Bomarzo, a celebrated Renaissance torturer-prince.
In Theatre of Man's original production, with music composed
by Martin Bresnick, historical scenes alternated with mythic
scenes inspired by the Etruscan necropolises of the Campagna
region of Italy.
"Well worth seeing, Stoneground's dream-hazed,
associative progression of scenes is like the flow of action
in Fellini's Satyricon or Strindberg's A Dream Play."
H. Dyckoff & M. Waterman, The Laney Tower, Feb. 21,
