Tales from the Underworld
Exeter Fringe Festival
Sat 16 Oct 2021
Once, in an ancient land, the rocks of the earth broke open and a young goddess was dragged down beneath. Today she returns to tell the stories she has carried back.
Want to know how they go? So do we! You’ll choose the path through tales of trapped gods, rivers of fire and desperate grasps for the light. Will you traverse the Duat, battle Hel, or take Hades on at his own game? Decide what the characters should do, then leave their fate and yours to the roll of the dice.
Tales from the Underworld is environmentally produced, based on mythology from around the world and from your own back garden.
The show deals with death, but not in an upsetting or explicit way. It’s suitable for families, but not aimed at them – we want adults to be able to enjoy storytelling and feel welcomed in the space.
