ATALANTA
GREEK MYTH RETOLD BY BEN HAGGARTY
 
A girl raised by a bear.
A father’s desperate pursuit for procreation in the name of immortality.
 
And the most terrifying race, with the most terrifying prize…
Audaciously reshuffling epic Greek Mythology, Ben Haggarty brings to the stage a fierce tale of a remarkable virgin hunter and devotee of Artemis who sure as hell doesn’t want to have anything to do with men.
Here the veneers of classical civilisation are stripped away and the truly awesome implications of the tales are made, sometimes unbearably, clear. Spend a moonlit night in the company of wild women, cocksure warriors and gods unleashed.
Adult (14+) Duration 70 mins
