Myth Adventures: Five Greek Classics
Myth Adventures: Five Greek Classics
By Eric Coble.

Cast: 5 to 26 actors. In a whirlwind of thrills and comedy, journey into the ancient world of Greek mythology with some of the greatest characters ever to grace a stage. Do you dare to shake hands with King Midas? Or find yourself, like poor Echo, in the middle of the ultimate marriage battle between the king and queen of the gods? And why can't Narcissus pull himself away from that pool of water? Follow the world's greatest musician, Orpheus, on his quest for the one thing his music can't do—bring back his dead love Euridice. Can his art save him in his journey to the Underworld where he'll face Charon, the undead boastman, Cerberus, the three-headed hound, and Hades, the twisted King of the Dead himself? And when you're the son of the most famous inventor in history, how do you make a name for yourself? Icarus only has minutes to figure it out once he's locked in a tower with his absent-minded father, Daedalus. Just how high can you fly before you fall? Then it's time to follow Theseus as he tracks down the horrifying minotaur in the labyrinth. He's determined to be a true hero, but will he survive long enough for the world to even remember his name? Taken as separate one acts, or as a full-length play, Myth Adventures is a fresh look at classic legends which sold out 50 performances in its premiere at the Cleveland Play House. Approximate running time: 90 minutes as a full-length play (15 minutes for each one-act). Area staging.
