“A fresh, energetic, biting satire that deconstructs the power of the con man and the charming story teller” Show Biz
Prometheus: Zeus refused to give fire to mortal men, but Prometheus stole fire and gave it to them. As punishment, Zeus bound him with cruel chainsm and drove a shaft through the middle, and set on him an eagle, which gnawed on his liver all day; but each night the liver grew again as much as the bird had devoured in the day before.
Io: Zeus lusted after Io, a young girl who refused his advances. He made her part cow to hide her. His wife Hera discovered her and then forced her to wander the earth without rest, plagued by a gadfly to sting her into madness. She wandered for many years traveling through Europe, Asia and Africa.
