Pants on Fire return with their sell out actor-musician extravaganza

"A jaw-dropping production... A breakthrough show."

- The Guardian
Pants on Fire return to London with Ovid's epic tales of Gods, heroes and monsters, retold through an exciting blend of gas masks, gramophones, live original songs, puppetry, film and darkly comic storytelling; a treat for all ages. This award winning, sell out actor musician extravaganza presents ancient myths as you've never seen them before. A swell party fusing magical stagecraft and breathtaking imagery relocating Ovid's stories of fantastical transformation to the dark and delicious times of WWII. Step into a world where Cupid is an evacuee with a catapult, Narcissus – an Hollywood heartthrob drooling over his own cinematic image and an Andrews Sisters -– like chorus find close harmony amid cosmic chaos. Revel in the immersive fabulous forties Pop-up Palais; a site-specific space transformed to tantalise your senses, with live bands, art exhibitions and many more before you even take your seat. Children under 16 should be accompanied by an adult. The venue is attached to a pub and therefore young persons should be accompanied by a responsible adult.
