The Handless King by Harley Elias

Director to be announced

Two eunuch scribes argue over the transition from Cuneiform to Aramaic in 728 BCE, and in turn wrestle with the purpose of writing, changing technologies, state violence, systemic oppression, the possibility of revolution, gender, disability, and the invention of poetry. A dark comedy for anyone who has ever wanted to draw triangles in clay.

UBRU – An older eunuch. He should appear distinctly older than Dilgan. Ubru is a self-assured, passionate poet. Capable of excitement, lust for life, and vitality, as well as desperation, anguish, and frustration with life. An artist who feels things violently and fully. To be played by an actor of any gender.
DILGAN – A younger male. He should feel and appear younger than Ubru. Dilgan is youthful, unfussy, laissez-faire, unspoilt-by-the-world, chill, pseudo-slackerish kind of guy. A not-annoying tech-bro?
The ADMINISTRATOR – An army functionary, annoying boss, no-time for excuses, not someone to mess around with kind of person. Somebody who performs more ‘dominant masculinity’ over the two eunuchs. Exasperated, fake-macho, got better things to do than yell at you. Any gender.
