"The epic sweep and frenetic action of grand adventure is tough to convey onstage. So for a children’s show about the search for the Golden Fleece, why not do it the way kids might? This Off Broadway version by Robert Forrest employs two actors shifting amid dozens of roles “armed with a cartload of wooden swords, silly hats, and lots of action figures,” as Oregon Children’s Theatre puts it. Recommended for ages 7 and older." - Oregon Arts Watch
An international collaboration with Visible Fictions in Scotland, U.K.
Jason’s uncle isn’t exactly lovable . . . He’s murdered his brother (the king), stolen the crown and torments his subjects. But Jason is ready to shake things up! He wants to reclaim the throne and be a better ruler, but to do so he and his crew (The Argonauts) must first sail to the ends of the earth and capture the Golden Fleece. Two actors take on dozens of roles armed with a cartload of wooden swords, silly hats, and lots of action figures. Get ready for a quirky and hilarious retelling of this classic tale.
