Jason and the Argonauts_logo website 700x487.jpg

An international collaboration with Visible Fictions in Scotland, UK
By Robert Forrest, original director–Douglas Irvine

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!
