10-14 Oct 2006. Britains celebrated storytelling duo, Hugh Lupton and Daniel Morden, return to the Theatre at Headington with their complete cycle of Greek myths after their sell-out performances last year. First up is Icarus (10 Oct), which tells the story of three generations of craftsmen: Prometheus the Titan, Hephaestos the God and Daedelus the man, who fashioned wings for himself and his son Icarus in an attempt to escape from Crete. This is followed by Metamorphosis (11 Oct), drawn from Ovids tales of gods and goddesses and the legends of transformation. Lupton and Morden then bring to life Homers epic tale of the siege and fall of Troy in The Iliad (13 Oct), with the final performance recounting Odysseus long and difficult voyage home after the Trojan war in The Odyssey (14 Oct). Admission 15 concessions 12. Performances 10, 11, 13 & 14 Oct at 19.30.
