Event description

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.
