THEATER: "Hermes" 

In an age when the puppet masters behind global financial collapses pay fewer and fewer consequences and commit class warfare on everyone else, artists and writers will sometimes dream up a little retribution. Bennett Fisher's "Hermes" is inspired in part by the role global investment banking and securities firm Goldman Sachs played in the current Greek economic collapse. Bread & Water Theatre will present the play, which follows four derivative traders seeking to benefit from the Greek financial meltdown, but their acts of greed and deceit bring unexpected consequences when they attract the attention of Hermes, Greek god of commerce, thieves, and fraud, who, according to B&WT's provided info, "goads them into bolder action through slippery logic, tantalizing visions of immense wealth, and an occasional punch in the balls."

"Hermes" opens Friday, October 26, at 8 p.m. at 243 Rosedale St. The show will continue Fridays-Saturdays at 8 p.m., and Sundays at 2 p.m. through November 18. Tickets are $12 or $6 for students and seniors. To purchase tickets or learn more, call 271-5523 or visit
