hits Athens in July and brings the gods of Mount Olympus directly to you.
“Have a drink!” says Dionysius.
The Athenian Players welcome all from across the cosmos to an innovative
newly born comedy in a magical theater located
in the heart of historical Athens, beginning July 26 th .
Featuring a cast of five actor, this play takes the audience
on a theatrical adventure, from the heights of Mount Olympus to
the depths of the underworld and back again in just over an hour.
Follow the enchanting echo of a nymph as she falls
for the handsome Narcissus; witness Medusa revel the secret behind the monster;
watch Hephaestus have his revenge on his mother Hera; be lured by Hades’
seduction of the innocent Persephone and get lost with
the creatures of the underworld.
The question in everyone’s mind, though, is who will get
the golden apple – will Paris Alexandros choose Athena,
Hera or Aphrodite? Dionysius leads you through a rowdy night with
actors playing gods, and gods playing tricks.
