Mythos: A Trilogy by Stephen Fry Gods / Heroes / Men
One of the world’s greatest storytellers, telling the world’s greatest stories. In this trilogy of plays, Stephen Fry takes to the stage in the company of the Greek gods, heroes and men whose gripping tales still echo today. Laugh-out loud funny, mind-blowing and often personal, Mythos is a once-in-a-lifetime experience with the icon himself. Gods charts the creation of the Cosmos and the primordial deities; the splendidly bloody interbreeding and family feuding that led to the rise of the Olympians - Zeus, Hera, Apollo, Athena, Hermes and the rest; and the creation of Humankind.
