by Wright&Grainger

Presented in NZ by A Mulled Whine Productions

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.

Internationally award-winning "masters of storytelling", Wright & Grainger bring a brand-new story about little things that leave big marks. A contemporary retelling of the myth of Helios, Atlas and Phaeton - on tour in Aotearoa, April 2024.

Following on from their internationally-acclaimed productions of ORPHEUS (Best in Fringe, Dunedin Fringe 2019), EURYDICE (Best Theatre, Adelaide Fringe 2020) and THE GODS THE GODS THE GODS, join soaring performer Alexander Wright in a little room with a tape player and delicate tale to tell.

"Wright and Grainger have a beautiful gift for taking Ancient Greek stories and hauling them into the 21st century, translating the touching and keeping the human truth intact." ★★★★ - The Wee Review (UK)

"a magical, memorable, and stirring story ... Helios will have you laughing, crying and everything in between." - Theatre Travels (UK/AUS)
