Sample Text:

Poseidon:                    So what’s this I hear about my son being blinded by a mere mortal?                                   

Polyphemus:                ‘Tis true, father. A despicable act if ever there was one! (Sneering) And by a so-called hero!

Odysseus:                    That would be me! Victor of the Trojan war.

Greek warrior 1:          Er, not single-handed, I think.

Greek warrior 2:          No, there were one or two others of us in that famous Trojan horse.

Polyphemus:                In that famous horse? I hope there was no cruelty involved. My dad’s very keen on horses.

Odysseus:                    And you, on sheep! But that didn’t stop you eating them!

Greek warriors1&2:    Or us!

Odysseus:                    So much for the sacred rules of hospitality!

Assembly or Class Play

Cast of 30 - easily adaptable up or down

Duration - around 10 to 15 minutes reading time (around 20 with addition of music)

Poseidon:                    (Tutting) Son! Really! That was rather greedy, even by your standards!

Polyphemus:                (Muttering sulkily) But I didn’t eat them all in one go!

Odysseus:                    (Sarcastically) Oh that was very good of you!

Polyphemus:                Well, thank you!

Poseidon:                    No, I think he’s being sarcastic, son! The lowest form of wit. But something tells me, not quite low enough for you!

Odysseus:                    (To Polyphemus) So come on! What have you got to say in your defense? Surely you don’t want your old man thinking you have the table manners of a monster?

Polyphemus:                (Spluttering) Well, I er,

Ancient Greek 5:         You just fancied a change from lamb stew, right?

Polyphemus:                (Beaming) Oh that’s right! Indeed I did!

Ancient Greek 6:         I expect lamb gets pretty boring night after night?

Polyphemus:                Oh you’re right!

Ancient Greek 7:         So we made a pleasant change to your diet?

Polyphemus:                (Slapping his large belly, fondly) Well, I’d hardly call it a diet!

Poseidon:                    (Groaning) Oh son! How did I produce such a numpty as you?
