Using two actors, a handful of action figures and one incredible wooden cart, Visible Fictions from Scotland innovatively recreates this classic Greek myth. Jason’s uncle isn’t exactly lovable…he’s murdered his brother (the king) and stolen the crown and now no one dares stand up to him. After being banished as a baby, our wannabe hero returns to claim his rightful throne and make some big changes. Things are about to get a major shake-up though because Jason is BACK! “Sly, silly, sophisticated and altogether winning take on an ancient Greek myth.” – The New York Times
For ages: 8 years old and above.
