Summary (From the publisher):

An audacious and imaginative hero finds a miraculous remedy for the all-too-real ills of the contemporary world—in this case the concentration of wealth in the hands of those who don’t deserve it at the expense of those who do. To achieve this he needs the aid of no less than three gods, and the play contains the fullest single surviving account of a visit to a sanctuary of the healing god Asclepius.
