The Iliad, the Odyssey, and All Greek Mythology in 99 Minutes or Less

March 31 @ 7:00 pm - 8:40 pm

$8

The Curtain Call Society of Cleveland State will be performing this play by Jay Hopkins and John Hunter. On a simple stage, with the clock ticking in front of everyone’s eyes, the cast speeds through all of Greek Mythology. It’s funny, updated, and made easy to understand. The Gods walk the Red Carpet. The Creation of Mankind is a botched subcontractor’s job. Man and Pandora try settling down despite an ominous wedding gift. Love stories are a dating show and the Greek Tragedies are sports highlights! And don’t forget the two greatest stories ever told, The Iliad and The Odyssey. Kidnap Helen of Troy and you’ve got a 10 year slap-fight of epic proportions with pouty Achilles, war-hungry Agamemnon, and clever Odysseus, destined to wander the seas for 10 more years fighting giants, seductresses and the Gods themselves. All the silly decisions, the absurd destinies, and the goofy characters are presented lightning-bolt fast with hysterical results as the clock is stopped with only seconds to spare.

Tickets are regularly $8, student tickets $5, and CSCC students are free.
