Pants on Fire’s award-winning, sell-out actor-musician extravaganza presents ancient myths as you’ve never see them before! A swell party fusing magical stagecraft and breathtaking imagery which relocates Ovid’s epic tales of fantastical transformation to the dark and delicious times of WWII.

Cupid – an evacuee with a catapult, Narcissus – an iconic Hollywood heartthrob drooling over his own cinematic image and The Chorus- Andrews-like sisters finding close harmony amid cosmic chaos.

An exploration of man’s inextricable link with nature and the universe. At a time when the earth is beginning another metamorphosis and humankind finds itself on the brink of change, these prescient ancient myths strike a poignant chord.

Adapted and Directed by Peter Bramley
