British Theatre Guide
A perfect piece of gig-theatre, with soaring melodies, genuine tenderness and hope that takes us on a euphoric journey of intimacy, death and faith…This is a truly life-affirming experience.
And the Gods are all gathering for the reckoning to start...
THE GODS THE GODS THE GODS is an internationally award-winning show from Wright&Grainger, the creators of the hugely acclaimed ORPHEUS & EURYDICE.
4 stories weave together across 14 tracks full of big beats, soaring melodies and heart-stopping spoken word. A show about what we look for outside ourselves, and where we find it in the people around us.
She is on a beach, looking at the stars.
He is on a bridge, just before dark.
They are about to fall, fast, wholesome and hard.
And The Gods are all gathering for the reckoning to start.
The Gods has a unique lyrical beauty that goes beyond words.
Expect to cry and laugh as you leave inspired that you are capable of anything if you have faith.
