40 minutes long. Parts for 15+ characters (flexible cast). Greek tragedy best suited for older students.
This play is based on a fictitious myth in combination with traditional Greek mythology surrounding the Olympians, led by Zeus. It is written for performers aged 13 to 17, depending on ability and maturity of the cast. It plays well to peer group audiences, as well as parents/teachers.
The play explores mature themes, with the death of Calypsae and Heracles’ banishment requiring particular sensitivity from performers. Although there are comic moments, it is a tragedy and there is tension between many of the characters throughout the play.
