Returning to the repertoire of the ancient Greeks, The Steam Industry presents Euripides' only surviving comedy, the family adventure, CYCLOPS!. Written in 408 BC, this Odyssean adventure has never reportedly been staged in the modern world. In a new version adapted by Phil Willmott with music by Elliott Davies, the company breathes new life into Euripides' 2000 year-old masterpiece, presenting its long-awaited modern world premiere. With a fun mixture of actors, puppets and live original music, CYCLOPS! tells the adventures of the brave warrior Odysseus and his crew, as they encounter the giant one-eyed monster on their long journey home from the Trojan War.
In the best tradition of family entertainment at the Scoop, this summer bring Odysseus's battle with the Cyclops to life with the same mixture of comedy, puppets and live original music that made last year's Treasure Island such a hit.
