Hercules

— Bristol Old Vic
'Clever, funny and slick'
time:19:30
price: See event details

Information:

Welcome to Thebes, a ping-pong parlour presided over by Zeus, king of the gods. In here, only the best, the strongest and the bravest can win, and Zeus won’t be pleased if you don’t show willing. Zeus’ young son, Hercules, has a lot to live up to, but is he strong enough to be the best and fight his inner demons?

In collaboration with our wildly inventive Young Company (T***k you), Made in Bristol alumni The Wardrobe Ensemble (Education, Education, Education) return to Bristol Old Vic to bring the Hercules myth bang up to date, scrutinising what it means to be strong in today’s society.

This brand new, devised show will be a rollicking, elegiac study of how our young men are raised and the pressures of masculinity.
