Anton Chekhov

The nearest we’ll come to meeting Chekhov. In Pennington’s masterclass.


Aphrodite

Dazzling: wise, clever twists about choice, male determination, and consequence.


Icarus

After all the gods and their lack of choice, we come to the final instalment, the human dimension. Where we have one. A heartfelt, satisfying finish.


Metaphysicals

A cross between cheerfully-spun recital and quicksilver treasury


Orpheus

A terrific reinvention, bringing gods and heroines up from the death of myth to an altered world.


Pandora’s Jar/Honour Among Thebes

The most educative stand-up and a thrilling presentation. Oh and bloody funny on the tragedies.


Persephone

Dazzling: wise, clever twists about choice, male determination, and consequence.


Push and Pull

A quietly thrilling evening, after it goes off with a bang and a bear.


Pygmalion

The most profound reinvention of this particular myth I’ve seen


The Love and War Trilogy

An enormously satisfying traversal


The Mahabharata

A dramatic sense of arrival the way the Odyssey here ended: a clash of even vaster ferocity, keening, treachery, humour, mischievousness, sacrifice and grief, joy and the agency of women.


The Rape of Lucrece

The definitive way to experience this troublingly great, disturbingly unresolved poem


Troy Story

Again the most educative stand-up and a thrilling presentation. Oh and bloody funny on war, male sexuality and the Bechdel Test.
