THE GAMES – a comedy about how three Greek nobodies get caught up in a celestial bet between Zeus, Hera and Hercules – comes to Newport’s The Riverfront this month.

The unwitting heroes, Stanzas, a terrible poet, Darius, the runt of the litter, and Hermaphrodite travel to compete in the ancient Olympics and take on the heroes of the sporting world with epic results for mankind.

The Games incorporates clowns, original music, songs and shadow puppetry.

A Spike Theatre production, they are able to offer workshops to schools and groups of young people over the age of 12 years.
