In this comedy, new life is breathed into fire-side stories and the “real” history of ancient Greece is presented as never before.
The sort-of truth behind Achilles heel, the face that very nearly launched a thousand ships, the twelve accidental labours of Hercules and more will be revealed.
Originally commissioned for Outpost Festival 2014 by New Model Theatre, Assembleth are delighted to be re-vamping this cult classic. Grecian Theatre like you’ve never seen it before!

Pay What You Decide!
This show is a Pay What You Decide event, which means you don’t have to pay until after you have seen the show!
We want to encourage more people to come and see shows, more often.
Pay What You Decide not only allows you to pay what you can afford, rather than a fixed ticket price, but also removes the risk of buying a ticket for a show in advance without knowing whether you are going to enjoy it or not.
Tickets are available to book in advance as usual, but there is no obligation for you to pay until after you have seen the show. You can then decide on a price which you think is suitable based on your experience, which means if you haven’t enjoyed it at all, you don’t have to pay anything.
All money collected will help Barbican pay the artists who have performed, and we therefore hope you will give generously.
Please ensure you have arrived and collected your tickets 15 minutes before the show starts in order to secure your seats.
At the end of the show, you can decide what to pay, either by cash, card or via our website.
Pay What You Decide FAQs (opens in a new page)

Seats are set in ‘bubbles’ so you will need to book all within that bubble – if you require more than is availablein that ‘bubble’ you will need to book a separate set/bubble.
"A great comedy play, and a refreshing, modern way to return to ancient Greece"
“A very funny 60-minute romp through mythology with much stomping about and
clattering of swords. There’s carnage, chaos and a huge amount of humour as five Drake's Drummers [now Assembleth Theatre] populate Greece, Troy and a doorless wooden horse.”
