An ‘undiscovered’ Aristophanes comedy – the story of three Greek nobodies caught up in a celestial bet between Zeus, Hera and Hercules. Our unwitting heroes: Stanzas (a terrible poet), Darius (the runt of the litter) and Hermaphrodite (born a girl) travel to compete in the ancient Olympics and take on the heroes of the sporting world with epic results for mankind and realistic willies.

Learn the prophecy of the Oracle!
Amaze at the powers bestowed from the Gods!
Understand the nature of human endurance!
Goggle at the sights in the gymnasium!
Have a journey of Olympic fun!

The Games incorporates clown, original music, song and shadow puppetry and is hilarious from beginning to end.  Suitable for aged 12 years plus.  Contains anatomical nudity.

“Definitely triple gold.” – The Stage
