Using two actors, a handful of action figures, and one incredible wooden cart, Visible Fictions innovatively recreates this classic Greek myth!
Jason's uncle isn't exactly lovable: he's murdered Jason's father, the King, banished Jason, and stolen the kingdom. Nobody has dared to stand up to him...until now! Jason is all grown up and ready to claim his rightful place on the throne. He and his crew must sail on the Argo to the other side of the world to find the Golden Fleece and bring it back, reuniting his people. As if that wasn't difficult enough, monsters, harpies, and a sleeping dragon try to ruin his fantastic journey!
"Jason and the Argonauts scores points with genuinely frightening monsters, no end of swashbuckling action and a secretly-good-for-you wealth of classical knowledge sure to please parents. As professional theater, it succeeds...by showcasing a pair of deceptively complicated performances with a minimum of bells and whistles." -Variety
