Unnatural Histories V at Antler PDX

I’m pretty excited to be in the upcoming Antler PDX show, Unnatural Histories V, that opens up on September 29th. Here’s a little bit about my piece Midas’ Minion:

It’s a little known fact that after King Midas went completely mad after accidentally turning everyone and everything he loved to gold, he locked himself in a tower only to develop an unhealthy relationship with a Rasputin like alchemist/tinkerer named Lauraunt. Vowing to never speak to anyone in person ever again out of fear and guilt (he only spoke to Lauraunt because he had a slight disgust and mistrust of him and if things ever went south, well, let’s just say the guilt would melt away) he had the tinkerer build an army of mechanical beetles who absorbed the golden contact on their shell, and then were able to pass along the infamous touch. Midas would whisper to these minions, and they would relay messages to the ears of friends and supporters. But to his enemies and foes, their sneaky little beetle bite was the last thing they would feel before hardening into gilded gorgon like monumental casualty.
