An ‘undiscovered’ Aristophanes comedy, The Games tells 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.

The Games incorporates clown, original music, song, shadow puppetry and original music.
