This is the story of Jason and the golden fleece. Jason was deprived of the expectation of his throne by his uncle Pelias, and was brought up by a Centaur named Chiron. When he grew up he went to his uncle to reclaim his kingdom and was told that he could have it if he gave his uncle the golden fleece, which had come from a magical ram. This was his heros quest.
Jason and his followers set sail on a ship named The Argo, going first to an Island inhabited only by women who had murdered all their men, and then chasing off harpies who are attacking a blind prophet. Before claiming the fleece Jason also completes several super-human tasks such as yoking fire-breathing bulls, ploughing a field and sowing dragons teeth and overcoming phantom warriors.
There are no real props or scenery used in this production; everything is represented by members of the cast. To indicate a river they all lie on their backs with their arms and legs waving in the air. They are trees and rocks and even the throne on which the king sits. The cast also make all the sound effects. In some ways, the performance is reminiscent of Monty Python. A very enjoyable tongue in cheek production.
