About this event

In this new series of tales from Ancient Greece, 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.

In this fourth tale, a cocky Theseus plans to slay the Minotaur and finds out why he needs a little Hope - and someone else - on his side.

The online plays are available on YouTube.
