Sample texts - Ancient Greek Myths

Play 1 Odysseus and the Cyclops

Speakers: Poseidon, Polyphemus, Cyclops 2, Odysseus, Greek Warriors 1 & 2.

Cyclops 2:    So why didn't you tell us, brother, what was going on?

Polyphemus (sarcastically):    Er, what bit of  ‘Help! I've been blinded!' didn't you understand?

Poseidon:   Yes, you could hear his screaming and hollering right across the oceans!

Cyclops 2:   But you said, ‘It's Nobody'. And then went on to actually repeat ‘Nobody has done this to me'. So we Cyclops naturally thought you were dreaming.

Polyphemus:   But it was Nobody who did it to me!

Cyclops 2:   So why are you making all the fuss? If Nobody is to blame, then you have no case to argue!

Odysseus:    Oh dear! And this is after it's all been explained! No wonder these Cyclops got a reputation for being a thick lot!

 

Play 2 Theseus and the Minotaur

Speakers: Theseus, Aegeus, Minotaur, Pasiphae, Minos, and Ariadne

Theseus:   Thank goodness for heroes, eh? Just as well I was on hand to save the day!

Minos (sarcastically):  But even you, oh great Theseus, would have found it impossible to kill the Minotaur without my daughter's help.

Ariadne:  Thanks, Dad! I was wondering when he'd get round to acknowledging my part in the happy ending.

Minos:   You can't say I didn't warn you about these heroes and their egos!

Ariadne:  I guess. But then love is blind. The minute he stepped off that boat, along with the other Athenian youth to be sacrificed, I fell for him hook, line and sinker!

Theseus:  Yes, I remember you trying to ‘reel me in' almost before I got off the boat! You certainly didn't hang about! My dad had warned me about pushy Cretan ladies - but I hadn't realised they'd be quite that forward!

Ariadne:   Can't say that I remember you putting up much of a fight!

Theseus:    Well, yours was the best offer of the day! That being, a sword and ball of thread with which to find my way out of the maze.

 

Play 3 Tale of Two Spinners

Speakers: Arachne, Arachne's mother, Athene, Zeus, Spider, and Spiderboy.

Arachne:  And that they all clearly worship the very ground you stand on?

Zeus:   Understandably so. I am the greatest of the gods, as everyone knows.

Arachne:  And they ..

Athene:    Enough! Enough! Can't you see what she's doing? Or are you just too conceited to realise she's flattering you?

Zeus:    You would do well to listen to this young lady, I mean spider, oh daughter of mine! She can tell the effect I have on women! She's not flattering me! She's telling it as it is!

Arachne's mum:  Thank goodness for men and their egos! I guess that's let my Arachne off the hook. Or the barbeque - whatever!

Arachne:  Phew! I sure thought I was toast, then!

 

Play 4 The Gorgon's Head

Speakers: Polydectes, Danae, Perseus, Athene, Enyo and Medusa.

Perseus: What a relief to move on from that marsh, and those 3 old hags!

Polydectus:  Just swapping one set of old hags for another, I'd say!

Medusa:   Charmed, I'm sure!

Athene:  A right slithery lot! All those snakes for hair! Just as well I gave him a sword to cut through Medusa's neck, and ..

Medusa:   Most importantly for him, a shield!

Enyo:  A shield? And how did that help him against my monstrous sisters?

Medusa:   Excuse me! Is that any way to refer to your darling sisters? Perhaps you, too, should get to know how it feels to be a statue!

 

Play 5 Pandora's Box

Speakers: Pandora, Epimetheus, Prometheus, Zeus, Vice and Hope

Epimetheus: And who is responsible for me feeling miserable and irritable today?

Hope:   This lot are all guilty, in their own different ways!

Pandora:  Who? Me?

Epimetheus:   I'll say! I just knew you were too good to be true!

Zeus:   How ungrateful! Typical mortal! I gave him the perfect woman and just listen to his gratitude!

Epimetheus:  What? Grateful for not only ruining my life but everybody else's too?

Vice:  Well, I sure was grateful. If it hadn't been for her disobedient ways, I'd still be in that box now!
