Myths and Adventures from Ancient Greece by Hannah Khalil
Fantasic For Families
  • Greek Myths - Midas by Peyvand Sadeghian

A series of four online children’s theatre shows written by Hannah Khalil. Created for children aged 3-8 exploring the tales of Persephone, Theseus and the Minotaur, King Midas and his Golden Touch and Pandora’s Box running for 10 minutes each approx.

The plays will be available to view online from 13 January on consecutive days through to 16 January and will be available to view online free for 3 months.

Children will enter a miniature world full of exciting adventures, with the battered insect Hope as their guide. Hope journeys into the world of Ancient Greece to escape Pandora's Box, warn King Midas of his greed, seek Persephone in the Underworld and help Theseus to defeat the Minotaur. With charming designs from Sam Wilde (Fly High Stories, Hiccup Theatre Company), under the direction of Ian Nicholson (I Want My Hat Back, This is Not My Hat, I Found My Hat with Little Angel Theatre), this project offers an engaging and delightfully imaginative adventure to Ancient Greece. Ian Nicholson and Peyvand Sadeghian (Little Angel Theatre, Goblin Theatre) perform.

Watermans has turned its attentions to this commission for children because of its continued commitment to widening access to theatre among young people.

Watermans chose the Greek Myths because of their enduring and timeless appeal and the way they address what it means to be human which can ignite interesting conversations with even the youngest children. The Greek Myths are also on the KS2 curriculum so this series is an additional resource for teachers who are looking to inspire their pupils.
