Storyline

At a lavish banquet, King Dionysius is confronted by his servant Damocles - a brat who is jealous of the king's splendor and power. Through supernatural forces, the two roles are switched. The smug, inexperienced commoner becomes the king. But his joy is short-lived. He quickly realizes that being king isn't all crowns and cheeseburgers. With great power comes great responsibility. "Sword of Damocles" is my artistic response to what I see currently transpiring within the American government and how its collapse is affecting every aspect of existence for us all. Written by Rufus Wainwright
