From Achilles and his famous heel to the wooden horse of Troy; from Theseus’s grapples with the Minotaur to an encounter with the hair-raising Cyclops — Stephen Fry brings to brilliant life the gods, monsters and mortals of ancient Greece, translating their stories into the language of the 21st century.
Fry divides his gripping tales of love and war, debauchery and revenge into three full-length shows. Gods takes us from primordial chaos to the creation of the dazzling Greek pantheon.
Heroes recounts the escapades of Perseus, Heracles and Theseus. Men plunges us into the heart of the Trojan War — and Odysseus’s treacherous journey back home.
Adapted from his best-selling book, and captivating for listeners of all ages, Mythos: A Trilogy is a gripping one-man tour-de-force from one of the best-loved and most respected cultural figures of our times, providing startling new perspectives on these iconic ancient stories.
