22-23 Sept 2005. The Theatre at Headington, part of the Headington Schools new arts complex, is hosting two unforgettable evenings of gripping storytelling as Hugh Lupton and Daniel Morden bring the great Homeric poems to life. It is the first time in Oxford for this well-travelled pair, who have been referred to by The Times as the nations most celebrated storytelling duo. Enthralling school-kids of ten and hardened classicists alike, Lupton and Morden have been retelling the story of the siege of Troy, and Odysseus long journey home after the end of the Trojan War for several years now in schools, international literary festivals and theatres around the country. However, none of the initial freshness has been lost as the talented duo tell their story a little differently each time, each performance being influenced by the events of the day, or the mood of the storytellers themselves. Admission 12/8 concs. Performances start 19.30 The Iliad 22 Sept; The Odyssey 23 Sept.
