The Iliad, The Odyssey, and All Greek Mythology in 99 Minutes or Less

By Jay Hopkins and John Hunter

Directed by Samantha Biatch

"On a simple stage, with the clock ticking in front of everyone's eyes, the cast speeds through all of Greek Mythology. Its funny, updated and made easy to understand. All the silly decisions, the absurd destinies, and the goofy characters are presented lightning-bolt fast with hysterical results as the clock is stopped with only seconds to spare." - Samuel French Just like it sounds: all the incest, intrigue, and amorality of ancient Greece in under 100 minutes.
