  • "The Alcestiad by Thornton Wilder tells the story of Admetus, King of Thessaly (rich in horses), his wife Alcestis, and the triumphs and tragedies they endure as favorites of the god Apollo. Every major event in their marriage is a direct result of the interference of Apollo, though this is not made clear in The Alcestiad. Rather, the extent of Apollo{u2019}s involvement is made clear in the accompanying satyr play, The Drunken Sisters. --readingandruminations.wordpress.com."
  • "Drunken sisters: A short, comic Satyr play wherein Apollo, disguised as a kitchen-boy, seeks to confound the three Fates to save the life of Admetus."@en
