An English country estate in the high Victorian era, the Goddesses Hera and Hestia are a pair of wealthy sisters semi-retired to pastoral bliss and boredom.  The story revolves around the imminent marriage of Hebe, daughter of Zeus and Hera, to Heracles.  Taking its cue from the novels of Austen, Forster, Waugh and Thackeray, JUNO EN VICTORIA is a new tragicomedy about the secret lives of Victorian women.  Funny, sad, and ultimately haunting this period piece pays homage to the parlor dramas of a bygone era.

“Bousel’s witty dialogue shines, with clever nods to Austen and Wilde…”
–Sam Hurwitt“If it is still running, you MUST go see it.  The play is SUPERB, the actors are Oscar-worthy. Really.”
–Goldstar Member“JUNO EN VICTORIA is a cleverly written and beautifully executed Victorian representation of Ancient Mythology focused on the Goddess Hera and her family.”
 –Goldstar Member“The women in this production are incredibly strong and talented actresses and I was deeply moved…”
–Goldstar Member
