zeusWhether it’s the lovely Aphrodite, deathly Hades, earthy Demeter, or the thunderous Zeus himself, the gods & goddesses of Mount Olympus are always quarrelling.

Flinging words like firebrands, performance storyteller, Xanthe Gresham conjures a world where the sun, sea, earth and underworld are nothing but a playground for these fast-dancing, wine-drinking, olive-eating deities.

 This is a wild hour of Greek myths for all the family!


‘Vivid & magical’ EVERYTHING THEATRE

‘a truly great storyteller, you’ll leave with something beautiful created in your own mind’ BRITISH THEATRE REVIEW

XANTHE GRESHAM is a storyteller with a distinctive, physical, performance style, who delights in magic and the preposterous, in equal measure! After Oxford University, Xanthe co-founded the Big Wheel Theatre Company and then went to Guildhall Drama School.  After a couple of years in theatre she gave it all up to be a primary school teacher… But when a storyteller came into her school, she was smitten by the artform. Alongside performances in theatres and art centres, Xanthe has performed in festivals, schools and libraries across the UK, Ireland, France, Slovenia, Holland, Switzerland and New Zealand.
