Helios

An award winning story about the Son of the God of the Sun. 

A lad lives half-way up a historic hill
A teenager is on a road trip to the city in a stolen car
A boy is driving a chariot, pulling the sun across the sky

From multi award winning storytellers Wright&Grainger, following their immensely successful ORPHEUS, EURYDICE, and THE GODS, THE GODS, THE GODS.
HELIOS transplants the Ancient Greek tale into a modern-day myth wound round the winding roads of rural England and into the everyday living of a towering city. 

Told by a solo storyteller, in an intimate room, along with a cinematic score, this is a story about growing up, about the pride of young boys, and how we define our worlds.
